The film SLR was great, too

I still have my old Nikon F3AF, and the AF lenses and teleconverter made for it. It's built like a tank, you could probably drive nails with the body. Nothing really wrong with it, and it served me well for quite a few years.

It was retired in favor of a dslr, not because the dslr was better, but because it was the same capability, and a lot more convenient.

That, in a nutshell, sums up state of the art mirrorless like the EM1 as compared to the latest DSLR's. Same capability, a lot more convenient.

It really is nice to have a slender little EM5, and a couple of fast primes in a fanny pack, as opposed to a full size DSLR and a bag full of lenses. Definitely more convenient, for me and for the people around me.
