That's what they say about the digital speedometer back in the 80s. As far as I can tell, we're still looking at needles gliding past numbers to tell us how fast we're going.

Way to cherry pick. That's also what they said about autofocus and digital cameras.

Or, given the reality of sales numbers and shareholder demands, mFT dies and Fuji goes back to making film. Canon and Nikon, seeing that mirrorless is dead, continue to make mirrored DSLRs forever.

CaNikon could remove the mirrors from their low end cameras and that customer base would potentially not even notice. To the average D3xxx customer OVF is of little to no benefit. It's like asking a soccer mom to discern the difference between FWD and RWD. When the EVF becomes cheaper/easier to manufacture than the mirror/pentaprism assembly, CaNikon will definitely jump ship and legitimize the mirrorless segment. I'm sure lower costs and higher profits are something shareholders would appreciate.
