DSLR's will remain for enthusiasts who want specialisms like long lenses and shooting birds and sport.

Every manufacturer including Nikon and Canon is putting most of their R&D money in to getting rid of the mirror. Canon and Nikon both now have decent PDAF sensors and we will see more in the future.

The DSLR isn't just about phase detect autofocus... It is also about the real time OVF, and there is no substitute for it yet, at least for some of us. I don't care if they put the AF on the sensor, if it works then fine, that has nothing to do with why I prefer a DSLR. And really I don't mind the mirror.
