The DSLR really does not need to be defended. It is a mature,  effective camera design. It is the new technology i.e. mirrorless that needs to establish it can meet the same standards in terms of focus speed and accuracy, lens selection and quality

Nikon and Canon do dominate the market, possibly because they make quality cameras, with great specifications, with an extensive line of lenses and accessories.

My main point is about lenses. Assuming if one buys an interchangeable lens camera, one will invest in lenses. The cost of good lenses will far exceed the cost of camera bodies. If you have a collection of lenses that meet your needs it and fits your Nikon or Canon DSLR, are you going to start over with an mFT or other system? Why?

If, like many first  time DSLR buyers, you are just going to leave the 18-55 kit lens on the camera, you might as well buy a panasonic LX7 or Canon G15 and really save some weight.
