I'm not trying to start any flame wars here, serious question.
What's the benefit of mirror-less for most photographers? I've Google'd around and I still haven't seen any compelling answers. I even have a couple of 'em and I'm not sold.
  • Smaller? Not if you have a big sensor and have to pair it up with decent lenses

  • Battery life is generally much worse.

  • It's not any less expensive for me to purchase.

  • There's no difference in image quality when comparing apples-to-apples

  • Focus is not any faster or better

  • You can have a completely silent electronic shutter?

So what am I missing here? Why should I really, really want one?
I do believe one day we may be at the point where mirror-less will replace the standard DSLR but right now it seems quite a way off aside from some very specific needs (e.g. maybe people who shoot a lot of video & photo with just one camera or you really need a super-high burst rate)
