Now, as a super moderator, what kind of forum do you want this to be?

(and that's coming from someone desperately trying to stick to DSLRs) Having used both in parallel for a while, there is still a lot I don't like about mirrorless cameras, but there is also a lot possible now already and more to come in the future that DSLRs will never be able to do or compete with. That's a simple fact... which you may or may not like, sure, but personal bias of that kind (which I have, too) still can't change those factsDSLRs could become a dead-end road only if Pentax fails (we can't count on Canon and Nikon, right?). This isn't a given.
One thing we should all understand: nobody benefits from Pentax failing. What you're "adding" to the topic is self-defeating, you want to stick with DSLRs but you spread the MILC propaganda that "DSLR is a dead-end road".
How about a DSLR which has all the advantages of a mirrorless, but with an optical viewfinder? It's possible (though I don't know if there are actual plans towards an implementation).
But this topic is about a certain Pentax DSLR, not about "DSLRs are so incapable and doomed!".
And as I said before, this specific Pentax DSLR does something which that poster said to be impossible for a SLR.
