Less moving parts makes more sense

If you can put PDAF on the sensor and get rid of a mirror completely it makes perfect sense to do so.  Less moving parts, less things to adjust, less things to break, less cost, less weight and size, less vibration, less noise.  LensRentals proved better accuracy too.  Once we have a fast electronic shutter or even a global shutter, the mirror will only be an added expense found on specialty cameras.

Remember how old people got upset with phones that didn't have physical keys?  They lost that argument too.
