Or, vice versa? Please educate me. State the benefits/cons of both ONLY if you have used both types to compare. Thanks!

"Hey, don't blame me."

If ultimate image quality is your goal, get DSLR. For greater portability, go mirror-less. I've used and owned both extensively and unless you get a significant decrease in bulk and weight (on the order of lbs.), all systems are a burden to carry. If you carry a DSLR, 8 lenses and tripod, you might wish you had the 4/3 Olympus. But if you only carry a D600, a zoom and a prime, you can count on superb image quality.

All that being said, you will find that once you're traveling and toting a camera around, a Sony NEX or Fuji XE1 with lenses in tow will still feel bulky and burdensome. For me, it was worth the slight increase in burden to get better image quality from the DSLR.

I backpack with a D600 if that's any indication.
