Re: Why mirrorless over dslr?

I have a D7000 and an EM5.

I like and use both.

The D7000 wins for action/sport , timelapse and night work.

To illustrate the night work problem I tried to shoot the super moon, but could not manually focus well, because theEVF blew out the detail on the EM5. That would not be a problem with the D7000.

The D7000 has an intervalomter, the Em5 doesn't so you need to buy an intervalometer for the EM5 if you want ot sue it for timelapse.

The EM5 is awesome for all else and weighs less.

The EM5 gets used more often - I carry it nearly everywhere I go.

I have not probs with EM5 controls except the back function buttons are too small for me to use for back button focus.

I rarely enter the menus, as the Super Control Panel has all the stuff I commonly change.

I don't think you can go wrong for either, depending on what you shoot.

So tell us what you want to shoot and maybe we can get you better answers.
