Just read this whole thread and discovered that while there's a lot of talk about pro cameras and pro systems there's been negligible discussion of mirror and shutter vibration effects on the image. Of course you can always lock the mirror up or introduce a second or two pause after mirror raise, but that's annoying or impractical for some kinds of photography.

But this is only if you use the camera in mirror mode. Yes, many camera have a lock up feature to eliminate vibration. BUT. When you put a DSLR in live view there is not mirror slap, it is out of the way and works the same way a mirrorless does.

...and the camera becomes less useful. If functionality is the same, then why even have the giant mirror and all the moving parts that can break and need adjusting?

Because a person wants to see what they are shooting, not a representation. EVF are not good, they may be good enough for some. Perhaps someday an EVF will look as natural as looking through glass, when that day comes, the mirror will go away. The camera does not become less useful, it does the same thing as mirrorless, and it will get better.
