Electronic shutters

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.

Sadly you can't use and electronic shutter with and OVF.  There are already mirrorless cameras with electronic shutter options (no moving parts) that currently have some nice uses (wildlife, churches, etc).
Once that is improved and sensors can dump a whole image quickly to a buffer, it will be all over.
