The fact is the current state of technology EVFs are sad little things that arent nearly up to alot of peoples standards. There plenty of valid reasons to want a full frame sensor. The almost complete lack of professional zoom lenses in the mirrorless segment and other issues with lens choices are real problem for a lot of people. and you have to realize that alot people don't want small light cameras. Not everyone but a high end camera for traveling or for hiking. Sometimes ergonomics are more important than size.

Allow me to ask something of you, please just indulge me. Which mirrorless or EVF based cameras have you used? What lenses have you used? IE what is your actual personal experience with mirrorless equipment?

On a sidenote, last I checked the 7D was considered a credible pro camera, so full frame isn't the end-all. And we're on the eve of full frame NEX so it should be interesting to see where that goes. I also think the "size" and "ergonomics" argument of mirrorless is neither here nor there. A GH3 is a pretty substantial camera, and one can make an argument that the SLT line also counts.

this is the the stuff the at confuses me the msot everyone says evf technology is getting there so i try some recent cameras an my first thought is they were worse than this at one point. way to much contrast tons of lag and a pixelated view. I would much prefer use liveview on the rears screen then use these.

anyway i have tried the Nex 6 fuji xe-1 sony a99 and the OMD em5

as far as lenses go there are some great mirrorless lenses out there i wish there were more.
