why does every mirrorless improvement have to portend the "fall of dslrs"? at this point, mirrorless are no where near dslr in many performance factors. these may or may not matter to you and most dslr owners have a mirrorless too. why not? horses for courses. i don't believe even one dslr owner has said they wished mirrorless did not exist.

There simply is no rational reason why SLR's have to die in order for mirrorless to survive. Yet a certain group amongst the general mirrorless population (of which I am a part of), are absolutely fanatical, in a religious way to the point that they must proclaim the death of SLR's, DECADES in advance of when that might actually happen. This brings them joy. This brings them happiness. For the rest of us, it is tiresome to the extreme.

Not all mirrorless users are like this. Only a small, but very loud, subgroup. They are exceedingly irrational. I'm called an SLR user by them, despite the fact that I almost never use my SLR. I use mirrorless, both digitally and on film. It does not matter since I do not worship, and I do mean worship, the altar of mirrorless.

Completely agree and quite frankly im tired of all these religious zealots acting as the harbinger of death for the mirror. GET A LIFE !!!
