If I had a reasonably accurate crystal ball, I'd be out spending my lottery winnings, not posting about what camera models might spec out at 5 years from now ;)

olympus has mirrorless cameras and is suffering.

with the current technology only amateurs would buy a mirrorless "DSLR".

it´s not about being the first but doing it right.
i can easily wait until canon does it RIGHT.

I realize it's not a DSLR but one of Canon's early attempts at a mirror-less camera was the Canon Pro1. The Pro 1 even came with a built in L lens.

 At one time it was around $800.00, squarely in the mid price point for DSLR's today.

However is was very slow, had a hard time focusing, the shutter lag was/is nerve rackingly slow. Sure cameras have come a long way since 2004 but in many ways this was a great first attempt.

Here are the details from a review site. http://www.shuttertalk.com/articles/canonpro1
