The mirrorless advantage: Cheaper repairs!

KEH are now publicizing their camera repair service,
and have announced flat rates for the cost:

https://www.keh.com/page/repair-pricing

While a DSLR body will cost $215 to repair,
a mirrorless body only costs $130
(being considered as a "consumer" item).

A clear advantage for a K-01 over a K-50!

I wonder if higher-end mirrorless cameras like the Sony A7 line will be billed at the "consumer" mirrorless rate or like a DSLR.

Yes, the classification is a lttle goofy,
listing rangefinder film bodies under the "SLR" heading.

Their higher-endedness is only in one component, the expensive sensor. Otherwise mirrorless cams have much less screws and levers.
