Very true. As much as I love my NEX, there are still some shots made easier with a DSLR.

Yeah it serves no one to dismiss DSLRs entirely. Both types of camera have their place. If you're shooting portraits, landscapes, or street candids, there isn't much reason not to use a mirrorless camera. But sports that require pro telephoto lenses, fast AF, and tracking? Weddings and other events that require a workhorse camera that can take a beating? (Not that you couldn't shoot a wedding with a NEX...I just wouldn't rest a whole business on one.) Still well inside the DSLR realm. That might change someday, but not yet.

Of course, I'm firmly in the mirrorless camp now, but I don't need fast AF and do need small cameras. So it's a no-brainer for me.
