Desperately seeking birds

The subtlety of my original comment about 98% same DNA between us and chimps was missed by some, but not you. The figure of 98% identity between DSLRs and mirrorless is meaningless, a number plucked out of thin air, and even if true, small differences in percentages can make a huge difference in function.Those numbers sure don't tell the whole story - we also share about 60% of our DNA with Fruit Flies and even Bananas!
But just as with cameras, how much those numbers mean in terms of actual differences depends on who evaluates them and from what angle. I think it is quite a large difference. Certainly one allows Canon to viable produce and improve its lineup in the new market conditions we transitioned to since the rise of smartphone while the other appears to not do so. That's more than a 2% difference if you ask me.
