Mirrorless optical superiority.

Especially so with wide angle lenses, due to the much shorter flange distance.

Did he mentioned cost and reliability, mirrorless being simpler, as having less moving parts?

We've heard this over and over but the reality seems to be that digital mirrorless is very different to film in that it can't function well with light coming in from too extreme an angle. You look at the length of a lot of mirrorless wide lenses(at least the ones that don't have non existant boarder performance like the Sony 16mm) and really they don't seem that different to me, I'm guessing more than a few maybe retrofocal.
