Re: Not sure diff between DSLR and ILC makes a lot of sense

For you, yes. But remember the vast majority of buyers never end up getting more than the 1 or 2 kit lenses. In other words, you are the exception not the rule. For those great masses that will never be buying 5 lenses but want something "better" than point and shoot mirrorless vs DSLR isn't much of an issue. All you have to do is look at how many ILCs Sony sells compared to Pentax or Oly.

But that population of buyers has no relevance to the subject of this thread, which is about long third party lenses. Lenses which, for now, are still exclusively made for DSLR mounts only. Those mirrorless kit users will never miss the lenses in question.  And the mirrorless enthusiasts who enjoy fiddling with adapters will be shopping for used manual focus stuff.
