wow you are the background king! do you have a thread of ingenious backgrounds or a book or something?
I'm a photo guy, not a video guy. But in a few years, my kids will be saying, "These silly pictures don't even move, s'up with that?!?"
Antigravity: Because that's the only way you'll be able to handhold all day with a mirrorless, lenses which are quite hand-holdable with a gripped or pro body. Even something relatively dainty like a 100-400 would be unbalanced and awkward on a mirrorless. Unless you think it would be humorous to see people with a 70-200/2.8IS II on a gimbal head shooting a wedding... actually, that probably would be humorous for most of us
I think mirrorless is a transitional technology between the current high end cameraphone (i.e. Lumia 1020) and the cameraphone of the future.
Canon could take the lead in this new market, but to do so they would have to cannibalize their own products, which they won't do.
Canon has killed their product line once when they changed from FD to EOS mount. If they are certain mirrorless is the way of the future, they will have done the same for their DSLRs. But the truth is that worldwide sales of DSLRs still far outstrip that of mirrorless cameras at a ratio of about 3:1.. Even in places where sales of mirrorless cameras has picked up previously, e.g., Japan, that growth has stagnated in the past year. Just take a look at BCNRanking (Japan).
