Re: DSLRs stink for video and many other things.

I use a DSLR, and I'm "rushing the demise of the DSLR." My reasons are the usual ones. I wouldn't mind a smaller (but not too small) camera. The flipping mirror, if not unreliable, is at least noisy, takes up space, causes vibration, and generally prevents me from seeing through the viewfinder when taking video. The phase detect AF is sometimes a miss, and contrast detect doesn't work along with the viewfinder (nor does focus peaking). The OVF on anything less than a FF DSLR is small compared to your average 35 mm SLR; ironically, modern EVFs give bigger views. Etc., etc

I don't do video, and I don't want an EVF.

and what about the other reasons I mentioned?

If you need something other than a DSLR, then it's time for you to change. However, change the camera you use, not the one I use.

Nobody's saying YOU have to change YOUR camera.
