However looking for a distant future if almost everyone gets educated on a mirrorless then dslr will be in such a small market share that their price would go to stratosphere to at least be able to compensate development costs turning them no longer viable.

I don't see anything here to disagree with--after a career in IT, I'd never bet on a mechanical technology over an all in-silico solution for the long term. Eventually, computers win...

Well , not necessarily ,

look at audio - a traditional high end analogue turntable system can arguably out perform most digital systems , and if you are looking at a 'no mechanical parts' system you lower the bar to typically mp3 systems which are just rubbish .

Even digital radio , thanks to the low bit rates , will actually sound worse than most old AM radio stations of the 1960s .
