Mirrorless - small package with a high quality sensor. But it does not focus on moving subjects well. I took my mirrorless kit to a weekend event and got a high OOF rate which was rather upsetting. Nikon 1 is the exception.

IMO until mirrorless gets the focus down its not worthwhile. OOF shots are annoying and downright unacceptable. --

I agree with Ron when it comes to moving objects. But if the object is stationary, I've found focus speed to be virtually indistinguishable between my D800 and Olympus E-PL5 -  good enough for markets, kids etc. The only exception is in certain lighting conditions (low light, low contrast).
