Why do you think that a Mirrorless needs to compete with a DSLR There are an awful lot of people who are not interested with carrying a large, heavy DSLR when going on a family outing. But want something better than a P&S.
No need to lure away from a DSLR ... many people will own both. And some P&S owners with buy them who aren't interested in Big & Heavy DSLRs. Two different groups to sell to.
P&S cameras out sell DSLRs because there are many people who don't want or need a DSLR. Mirrorless cameras will sell to people moving-up from a P&S you don't want the size and weight of a DSLR and don't need image quality of a DSLR. How many of your acquaintance s print their snapshots at 20x30
For many people that is enough. Mico 4/3 cameras sell well because of their size and good enough quality. BTW why don't you own a 60 MP + MFD, much better quality than a DSLR
C.D Embrey, my post is about the EVIL system not P & S. I have never mentioned that 4/3 and P &S are not good. You keep on using P & S as a counter agruement and try to confuse the discussion. People have different need and different idea of camera. that is why there are so many different makers and models out there. I do not own a 60 MP MFD due to the extremely highj price, size and weight. Also I do not want to deal with 60 MP per picture. What my acquaintance do with their picture is their own business.
