The optical viewfinder is very important to some - and EVFs don't quite work.(03-28-2021, 08:20 AM)Kunzite Wrote: This doesn't apply to the K-3iii, but I've described a configuration which would make the DSLRs every bit as accurate as a mirrorless - because the data would be read from the main sensor. Before claiming (or supporting claims) that "DSLRs are a dead end", consider such possible evolutions.
What I'm missing with this approach is: where is the advantage? Other than still having an optical viewfinder? Why put effort in a more complex (and likely more expensive) solution that catches up with mirrorless in one regard (AF precision), but still falls behind in many others (like real-time image preview)?
And - we're talking about a less complex DSLR configuration (because you'd no longer need dedicated AF and metering systems) while being able to match MILCs spec by spec (including AF coverage).
"Real-time image preview" is not an advantage IMHO. Seeing the actual scene is. If you disagree, that's fine, you have cameras doing it your way - but don't tell me every camera should be like that.

Come on, don't avoid the answer.
His choice to explain his opinion here. Isn't that obvious?
Anyway, I'm out, I made my point.
