The way it is going I think mirrorless will eventually mean the DSLR will become a thing of the past like a film camera. Especially when you consider how many people already use the screen on the back of their DSLR either just as playback to check the image or those that shot via Liveview. The principle is the same. How many of us really care about a mirror and a prism in the camera body that we don't see? At present I prefer shooting with a DSLR, it's a size thing. I prefer a camera I can hold comfortably and is ergonomic to use. The smaller mirrorless cameras I have tried I find fiddly and awkward and I just can not use the little point and shot cameras.

Eventually I guess a full frame full size mirrorless is the way I will be going. Eventually.

I don't like the fact you're looking at an electrical image rather than literally through the glass of a lens. Also Im the same as you, I like my camera and have a bit of bulk about it. That's one of the reasons why I use a battery grip. :D

Was out with a couple of pro photographers yesterday and they were saying there is no comparison and will go mirrorless for a stack of technical reasons. I guess when you consider what you can do with your phone camera that you can't do with your DSLR it does make sense. A mirrorless is much the same with a whole lot better quality.
