Do you still insist on buying a car with a carburetor (instead of fuel injection)? If so, where do you find them?

The day of the "mirrored" camera is just about over.

Nonsense. Fuel injection does everthing a carby can do as well or better, and some things a carby can't do.

Mirrorless viewfinders, on the other hand, are grossly inferior to good optical ones.

well when an OVF can display a histogram and can punch in 10X and i can chimp without putting my glasses on you may have an argument

I couldn't care less what technology my camera uses - mirror, mirrorless, or little green pixies - but I will not put up with a low quality viewfinder on an otherwise high quality camera.

SLRs will be manufactured for at least the next 30 years, same as rangefinders went on being made by high-quality specialist makers for decades after the (film) SLR came along.

I am looking forward to an EVF that delivers on all counts.  They are certainly much improved from the earliest versions.  For now, I am happy with my camera's OVF and see no need to purchase a new body.

I'm glad I have the EF-S lenses I do and hope the used market will provide them to people who want them but cannot purchase new copies.

Finally, congratulations on the longest signature I've seen on any forum.
