this discussion seems to resurface on a regular basis. Personally I'm not a fan of any particular  mirrorless system , I have a DSLR system built around a crop sensor (4/3). Tjhis being an older system has many shortcomings compared to new ( crop sensor APS-c ) as well as FF sensor cameras.

And  I have purchased over the years macro, WA, telephoto lenses, strobes, off camera sync cables plus other odds and ends.  While my photographic skills have improved over time, I sitll think my current camera has features I've not yet explored.

I'm semi retired, photography is a hobby, Buying a whole new system...lenses, accesories etc seems like a silly expenditure until i have exhausted features of  my current system.

I tried my GF's panasonic G2, nice camera but in my mind mirrorless technologies have a long way to go to outperform even entry level DSLR's. The optical view finder is superior to any EVF ive seen, of course this may change with future technology , but composing on an LCD will not work for me ( of course I am a crotchety "old" 64yo

So...in a year or so, maybe more,  I may feel the need to upgrade my system. Might be FF, might be APS-c like a Nikon D7100.....but it will have a OVF. and money will be an issue, After all it is a hobby.
