This of course is easily proven false. Any lens you can use a DSLR, you can also use on many mirrorless cameras. So while Canon forces you to only use only there latest Canon mount lenses (they really can't use Canon FD lenses anymore), a mirrorless camera lets you use any lens. I currently use Nikon, Canon, Minolta, Olympus and Panasonic lens on my one mirrorless camera.

What is even funnier is with a camera like the E-M5, all those NON-stabilized DSLR lenses are stabilized. So in some ways they actually work better on mirrorless.

Nikon and Canon DSLRs has of course a much larger lens selection with full functionality. You wont see any mirrorless cameras with adapters using manual focus with Nikon/Canon 300 2.8 lenses sitting at the sidelines on sports events.

Which is why 40 years ago there was no sports photography according to you...because lenses back then were not fully functional?

Sorry, mirrorless camera have a larger lens selection plain and simple. If you want to argue DSLRs have more lenses suited for "sports events", that is a different argument and I would agree.

If you want to argue the EOS-M is not fully functional because it doesn't focus fast enough for "sports event" go ahead.
