The results of this poll are as expected. A camera that has such an important feature missing (OVF) will be at a disadvantage in ~75% of the cases. And the results reflect that.

Those few that really don't need a OVF would be happy with their smaller camera of course, no doubt about that. I mean, we're talking about almost a cm here.

I'm currently not interested in FF.

Your option list is, by the way, missing a mirror-less option with EVF.

Because you can't make all these moving parts and precision parts and calibrate them for less than about $400. In contrast, the cheapest µ4/3 or NEX generally run about $200. Because you can put a sensor and a shutter in a box, skip calibration, and ship it out the door for $200.
You are grossly exagregating the cost of moving parts. These parts are virtually free with todays computer assisted manufacturing, assembly and calibration. Even the internals of a fully mechanical watch is virtually dirt cheap these days....

O wow, it is catching on to people

My first priority is to buy a full frame dslr, but I would recommend my brother to buy the mirrorless camera, since he only does home snapping.

What need does he have for a 24mp + FF camera for home snapping? Why not buy the K-01?

I would buy a FF MILC if it featured a new mount. This choice doesn't seem to correspond to any option in this poll.
