Are you faulting me for having an opinion, or for sharing it?

for spouting your opinion over and over and over and over again like some religious nut trying to convert as many people as he can. I'm faulting you for not being able to have an opinion that isn't abrasive and stepping on other people's toes. I'm faulting you for not being able to have a nonexclusivistic, nonelitistic, nonostracizing preference.

You cannot see the forest through the trees. Here is how i actually see it. IF there was an EVF that was indistinguishable from OVF (close enough that even OVF enthusiasts would not care), and if on sensor PDAF was as fast as today's dedicated PDAF, and if battery life was just as good as an equivalent DSLR, then what? Would the shooting experience not be just as enjoyable?

Now before you say "but we are a long ways away from that", the question stands. Would you not have just as enjoyable experience with that mirrorless? My views are not exclusive, they are all inclusive because i believe all the haters would love such a mirrorless camera. If they can get by any personal walls, that is. I truly believe mirrorless is the best answer, not because i have a grudge to sort out by winning an argument, not because i have some ancient sentimental attachment to an outdated technology. Because i actually believe it's superior, or at least will be.

The more people that jump aboard mirrorless, the faster we will get there. So no, it's not a cult, it's not a religion, and it's not elitist. It's technology, and it's going to happen whether you want it to or not.

Or maybe not -- the Sony fanboys were saying all the same stuff about IBIS which has yet to set the photographic world ablaze.  You can probably add Sony's on-board ADC to that as well.  There have always been mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras clear back into the film days and somehow the SLR proved to be the better solution for most photographers.  Mirrorless will prevail if (and only if) it can offer a more compelling solution than whatever else is out there.  Or put another way, once it becomes "the better mousetrap" the world will beat a path to its door.  To do this it has to deliver on the promises in your first paragraph -- and do it at a compelling price point.  This we haven't seen yet.
