If you would choe mirrorless, what would be your reason?

I guess many Canon DSLR users are quite fond of their cams nd do not need or ant a mirrorless. Most things heard are the OVF and the superior PDAF. Sometimes lenschoice too. Suppose these would become so good, they are not a reason not to buy them. What would your main reason be too switch. Would it be a one system that fits all your needs. A larger and a smaller body for a system with still large fast zooms? Suppose you are close to switch or partly switch, what are your reasons? I wonder how Canon DSLR users think about this and how it compares to other users. Thanks!

To me it is THE SYSTEM size and weight are important. All lenses need to be a good match for the body. It needs to be significantly smaller than my DSLR otherwise what is the point? (think of GX7, EM1, EM5 or V1/V2 if you think it is good enough etc).

A smaller body is what I want. Size and weight are a not very important. The lenses may be the same size and weight as my current set up. (Think Samsung NX30 or Sony NEX)

Size and weight are not so important. I'll just will buy two bodies from the same system. A smaller one for the smaller lenses and a bigger one for the big and fast zooms. So I can travel light when I want to and bigger when needed. Think of NEX5+ A7, GM1 + EM5 or NX-30 + NX2000, bigger Canon mirrorless when it comes + EOS M.

Sensorsize is more important than weight/size: I will buy a A7 kind of cam once it fits my needs. The body is small. The lenses are okey even if the fast zooms are bigger and heavier then my current ones.

Size and weight are very important. I want to keep my DSLR and add a small mirrorless that is capable enough with the smaller lenses available (think EOS-M, GM1, NX2000, NEX3, J1 or V1).
