Experiences:

Walking on campus, seeing an interesting animal like a cardinal,

DSLR: 5D2+300 F4L IS:  Oh I wish I carried them with me.

Mirrorless: Panasonic GX1 + Oly 40-150: I take out the camera from my bag and shoot.

While there is no doubt that the $2500 dslr combination offers superior image quality, I can't carry them with me every day, and thus I cannot get pictures unless I decide to take them on a photo walk.  The MFT combination costs $350, but I can walk around with them without getting exhausted, thus I get pictures.  The IQ is quite acceptable.

Bottomline: you can't get pictures if you don't have your camera with you
