Ansel Adams would think your DSLR is a toy. There is little purpose for flipping mirrors any more and soon I think all of the issues will be overcome. The fact that the cameras and lenses are smaller for the same sensor has to be considered a good thing. For my photography, mirrorless is just fine.

I don't care for retro look either. But as far as features is concerned, look at the Olympus OM-D E-M5. I bet its features put many DSLRs to shame. My Sony A77 is also a very feature-rich and capable camera. It has a mirror, but it doesn't flip.

"I don't need no flippin' mirror.

A camera is a tool for making images.  Use the tool that best suits your needs, regardless if it has a flipping mirror or not.
