Is it that much different compared to DSLRs?
Digital cameras are computers. 10 years max and they are done.
My 10 year old Canon 6D is a perfectly fine camera. Actually, my 14 year old 450D is also perfectly usable and I'll pick it if I want something light, combined with a stabilised kit lens. None of them is "done".
I have a 23 year old Nikon Coolpix 990. Still works, it takes AA batteries. The 995 used a Nikon rechargeable battery pack, these are toast.
DSLRs are so noisy. That's my biggest issue. No one needs flash or bright lights at press events today, mirrorless excel in everything, and they are silent.
I wouldn't say they excel at everything (battery life? cost?). I can't stand looking at another screen. I'm surprised so many people are ok with it; but then again, people love looking at screens these days. I understand the advantage of seeing instant feedback on the exposure, etc. But to me, the price you pay of having to look at yet another screen is not worth it.
Maybe because I have to look at screens all day for work. I'm over it. I don't want to be detached further from reality on yet another activity. This same "progress" has ruined much of modern music in my opinion, which is now programmed instead of composed and performed.
