This thread is amusing and entertaining.

Interesting to see so many not getting it yet.

Mirrorless is NOT about EVF vs OVF or mirror box vs no mirror box.

Mirrorless is about having a constantly fed image sensor. And having a constantly fed image sensor is the only way cameras can evolve. That way data from the image sensor can be read and analyzed continually right up to the actual exposure.

If it’s not about EFV or mirror box then just press the LV button and voila, you have all those goodies plus DPAF which is much better than all the other AF implementations.

A) DPAF isn't "much better". It's marginally better in some circumstances and stills isn't one of them.
B) The appeal of the Sony cameras and most others is not just it's mirrorless. The main appeal for me is features. As someone who does 50/50 stills/video, there isn't a camera Canon makes suitable for that work.
The reason brands like Sony, Fuji and Panasonic are rapidly gaining users is nothing to do with size and weight or mirrorless vs DLSR. It's features offered and a competitive price.
