So where does all this put us? Tally it up. No advantage in sensor, image processing, shutter, frame rates, buffer, features, or potential advances to either DSLR or mirrorless. Clear disadvantage at the moment to mirrorless in power. Gap closing rapidly in viewing system and focus. And Size doesn't really have to be a relevant issue other than sensor size choice and all that implies.

Conclusion: we're actually very near the point where DSLRs will simply transition to mirrorless for most users. And not that far from the point where DSLRs will go mirrorless for all users.

A number of us here were shooting before autofocus was even dreamed of.  After it was implemented a large number of photographers continued to focus manually.  Scan the forums and you see many people love to use old legacy lenses and manually focus.

I'm sure most system-wide changes take a similar course.  When all other things are equal, mirrorless will likely be the norm.  But how many people will refuse to give up the OVF and the sound of a mirror slapping?  At least a few.  DSLR's may still be made as a niche-type item.
