Everyone NEEDS a mirrorless camera

But not the way Thom states. There is no transitioning. Everyone needs a phone camera, perhaps a 41mp unit which is mirrorless, anything better than that would be a DSLR.

Unless manufacturers put a real effort into making mirrorless better for less, there is no reason to transition, only to add a cell phone camera when you need snapshots, everythings is on the decline until something superior to the DSLR comes out. That hasn't happened yet.

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.
