Re: Some differences and the appeal of mirrorless...

I'd argue the reality of the mirrorless market is that its key growth area is aiming between the DSLR and the compact. Basically offering a larger sensor but with the useability of a compact, I.E. no viewfinder, fewer controls.

I'd disagree.  I think that mirrorless has floundered in large part because that's what manufacturers have been offering until recently.  Only so many p&s'ers want to "upgrade" to a bigger p&s.  Most look at Canon Rebels and Nikon D3200s for $550 with a viewfinder and get that a DSLR is a "serious" camera, and wonder why they'd want a $550 point & shoot with a lens sticking out of it.  More cameras like the Panasonic G series and Sony A3000 are needed, at least in the US, for mirrorless to make inroads.  (I think Sony got too cheap with the A3000 which is selling for under $400 with a lens, but has reportedly terrible LCD and EVF).
