i.e. if the OP doesn't like them, they cannot possibly work for anyone. Photography is about framing and content... not camera wars. Most mirrorless cameras provide more resolution than 35mm film... yet, nobody complained about 35mm film being a toy.

I think if the OP relates to professional photography he has a point. The number of (non sponsored) professional photographers who worship mirrorless camera's and actually doing their job with them (mid format sized not counted) are hard to find. Most of my colleagues use Canon, secondly Nikon DSLR's..and then I really don't know which will come third.

Professional camera usage is more than image quality alone, because nowadays most (by means of image quality) popular brands are really really close not related to pro/hobby/mirror or mirrorless...especially when the majority of images is resized/edited for web usage.

Besides functionality and build it goes now a lot about the camera being part of the system and importantly the availability of that system. Nikon and Canon are simple aimed at professional usage and the other brands (at least I don't know them) not. Again I don't mean by image quality (alone) I mean by delivering a complete system which will work under all kinds of conditions and is available when you need it in many places.
