Chris, of course I was being slightly ironic, each to their own. However, I do tire of some of the arguments that unless you have a DSLR you can't do certain things. I find I can do pretty much anything with my E-M5 that I could do with a DSLR. The main difference is that I don't feel a burning desire to promote that choice to anyone and everyone

I think there is a lot of personal preference - and its indeed about the photographer + camera as a whole unit. You may do everything you want with your E-M5 - I may do not with this camera. I smply experenced that manual focus with the 1/10 magnified liveview or even on a computerscreen (with a microscope camera) was a pain for me due to flickering and delayed display - while it was praised by everyone else here. I prefer an ancient split prism viewfinder with instant feed back anytime. I also met plenty of Sony and mirrorless advocates who just told me (or others) that our DSLRs were soo yesterday...

I still wish to have DSLRsa with optical finders around in the future....

I don't think you'll have to worry about that, they're not about to disappear just yet
