This is through a chain link fence, with a 5 year old DSLR. Show me a mirrorless shot anywhere close to having this much background seperation that is this sharp, through a fence and 90 feet away.

You are arguing that you can hunt bears with a bb gun. Although you technically could, you wouldn't be wise (or successful).

Any of the ones I posted here the type of thing you mean? (I would post the photos in this thread but dpr/my connection isn't letting me).

No they weren't shot though a fence but I don't ever see that being more than a very rare occurance with me shooting sports. I also suspect a fair few DSLRs would probably fail shooting through a fence and I know for sure I'd much rather use my GH2 for sports than something like a 1000D.

Only the ones where you were close enough to the players to get a shallow DOF. Anything far away from your camera has a huge DOF.

During tennis tournaments I sometimes get lucky and the #1 and #2 courts have a low fence on one side. Then I really get to isolate the subject..

My AF is usually ridiculed as the worst. (5dMkII), I have no focus tracking (whatever that is), and can only shoot 3.8fps.

I shoot single shot, and wouldn't shoot with a mirrorless camera even over my old pig of a DSLR.
