Look at it this way - what if we had been using mirrorless on-sensor PDAF cameras all along, and a DSLR was introduced? People would be raving about the long battery life, responsiveness, tracking ability in low light...

If we'd been using mirrorless on-sensor PDAF cameras for years and suddenly an optical viewfinder DSLR was introduced... people would be ranting about the bulky stone age prism technology which shows almost no useful overlay information, total lack of video coverage, liveview focusing and exposure feedback in the viewfinder,  the alignment issues with the secondary AF sensor array, the loud and clunky operation and slow framerate, etc. All in the name of an relatively inaccurate but fast-tracking AF subsystem...
