Seriously, I shoot exclusively with mirrorless, but to say there is no place for a DSLR is ridiculous -Drew is bang on, sports, fast action and wildlife are so much better seved by the DSLR market than the mirrorless market.

I mostly shoot wildlife nowadays -- birds, to be specific -- and I'm in a position where my existing gear is superannuated and it would be a perfect time to switch platforms.  I looked over all the mirrorless systems trying to see if one of them might be a good bet for birding.  Turned out, it doesn't matter how good the autofocus is starting to get... none of them have a single lens that's competitive for my needs.
