For me lacking of equivalent lenses, EVF/CDAF and handing/ergonomic and inferior IQ (compared to FF) are main reasons.  Therefore I still prefer a Canon DSLR to backup my 5DIII as it's ready to use all my EF lenses without requiring an adapter (such as in EOS-M case).  60D is my backup camera in travel at this moment but I may pickup SR1/100D later.

There are simply no equivalent lenses as 24-70L II, 70-200L II (also 70-200L/4.0 IS) and 17mm TS-E, the Canon Trinity in my bag, 15mm FE, 100-400L, Sigma 150mm/2.8 macro OS and 500L with 1.4x TC III if necessary.  No match from many mirrorless to 5DIII AF (also own 1DIII) speed and tracking capability. With above lenses, 5DIII has much better IQ and much higher chance to capture moments than any mirrorless with whatever lenses they could use.
