Re: This is business - there is a market for both

I agree that the OP's title was a tad prevocative in this forum, but OTOH why does every mirror-less development turn into pointless mirror-less versus DSLR debate? There is very clearly an existing market for both. Like NJOW, I fully expect to own both to get the advantages of both.

Because of the provocative posts, maybe? Because some think there isn't room for both, and all cameras should be mirrorless? Because of the "I would refuse to acknowledge innovation and quality if it's not retro mirrorless" posts? Because it's impressive when MILC makers are catching up with Pentax, and Pentax should "take notice"?

DSLRs may outsell mirror-less by roughly 4:1 at the moment but that's irrelevant.

It's quite relevant, as it demolishes the ridiculous idea that Pentax should go out of their way in order to copy the mirrorless product of the day.
