You can paint a house with a Q-tip if your willing to put in the hours, but that doesn't mean it's the best tool for the job.

I don't understand all the replies bashing the OP. It is clear that some who replied did not even read the blog. His main point was that DSLRs are not dead and he said more positive things than negative about mirrorless. He never said you can't shoot fast moving subjects with a mirrorless camera, he said that a DSLR is a better tool for the job.

Size isn't the big difference that some make it out to be. A Canon T4i with 18-55 lens weighs the same as a X-Pro1 with 18-55 lens and isn't much larger. They both have APS-C sensors; the Canon is much cheaper, has faster AF, an articulating LCD and a built-in flash.

I personally use a Fuji because I don't care about the price and I don't shoot fast moving subjects, but I would recommend a small DSLR to most people.
