Now we see through a glass, darkly...

The prediction is not that everyone will switch back to just DSLRs and mirrorless will die out. It is that some or many will switch back once the novelty of mirrorless has worn off. For some use cases mirrorless has advantages. For some use cases DSLRs have advantages. The observation is that not everyone will permanently switch to mirrorless.Sales are going to be the driving force and where R&D will be positioned. Pentax is in a state a denial. If people switch entirely to mirrorless, I can't seem them transitioning back normally. The statement reminds me of a Kodak moment and we know where they went. I agree both have their strengths and weaknesses but I cannot see the shift back to just DSLR's anymore. Hopefully they will harmonize.
