Image postview in the EVF. Ends the ape-like game many DSLR owners have to perform

I add: The image can be postviewed in the EVF.

That is an end to the ape-like game many DSLR owners have to perform: Take the picture, put the DSLR away from the face, check the taken image on the LCD, put the DSLR into the face, take the picture, put the DSLR away from the face, check the taken image on the LCD, put the DSLR into the face, take the picture, put the DSLR away from the face, check the taken image on the LCD, put the DSLR into the face, take the picture, put the DSLR away from the face, check the taken image on the LCD, , put the DSLR into the face, take....

mirrorless = face/contrast detect AF ( more exact ),

no per-lens AF adjust necessary,

sensor more easy to clean because closer to the mount,

less possibly faulty mechanical parts,

and lens design advantages: The light does not have to pass the far from the sensor away mount opening ( the opening is closer to the sensor ). For wide angle and middle angle to wide angle, better lenses can be expected in the future than for DSLRs ( but this also depends if the photogear maker understands the importance of lenses or not ).

For video the mirror in the dslr is useless and only adds unnecessary complexity.
