With a phase-detect DSLR, you have the choice of using either 1) a PDAF system for following fast moving subjects with reasonable accuracy or 2) live view and CDAF (or MF) for static subjects with critical accuracy. At present, you can get a mirrorless body with much faster CDAF but much more limited PDAF (if at all), so I'd have to say the DSLR is more "versatile" in this respect.

With Sony NEX, I have access to:

1- CDAF w/PDAF assist (also being attempted in DSLRs with PDAF)

2- Full time PDAF (including when image is being captured)

3- AF Micro Adjust to ensure accuracy

I think it's pretty well established that the NEX PDAF is not quite up there with current DSLRs, which is why I called the PDAF "limited."

4- DMF with Focus Peaking display (Points in focus are highlighted in addition to PDAF focus points used to acquire focus)

5- Live View is not crippled as is the case in DSLRs.

6- Manual Focus assist via Focus Peaking and Focus Magnify thru EVF or LCD (whichever is more convenient)

7- Not forced to use Live View (usually fixed screen on DSLRs) for video

It should also be mentioned that there is a FF, phase-detect DSLR with an EVF, if you demand that functionality. Can you guess which company makes it?
