Why choose an X-T1 instead of a DSLR?

With many ILM cameras starting to show up with a form factor similar to DSLRs, what is the motivation to choose a mirrorless? I know the ILMs are usually smaller than DSLRs, but are the new generation like the X-T1 significantly smaller to be the reason to switch from a DSLR system? I can maybe understand a first time buyer choosing the X-T1, but I would be inclined to get a new DSLR body & enjoy the nice optical viewfinder & speed advantages. I use an X-100 & love it. I don't much like using the EVF, mainly because it makes me feel somewhat removed/detached from the scene.

I just think that things should work the way I expect them to.
