    oh wait, but we do have more pixels for your dollar now. Because we all intend on making our photos wall sized prints of course.

    Yeah, I don't see switching as a practical thing, But I'll add CDCs to the arsenal gladly. :)

    The mirror less system is best for view camera.

    I don't think the dslr will die, I know for a fact it will evolve, as it has since it was a glass negative box affair with calf skin bellows. It's one generation of the ever evolving camera.

    I have three DSLRs, but I'm OK with mirrorless...

    of course, it has to be able to handle m42 primes.

    I have beavered away with an old original Canon Digital Rebel that I bought in NYC over 10 years ago although the love had long since expired. Planning for a holiday to Canada and a cruise up to Alaska I decided to buy a new compact to save the bulk of my lenses and decided on a Lumix FZ200 that I was able to get dirt cheap from Amazon. Although not the current model the features and ease of use rekindled my love of photography to such an extent that I also decided to upgrade my DSLR. I decided to buy a used Canon 60D from a reputable dealer for peanuts which, again, while not up to date is such a huge improvement over my old kit. The added bonus is that all my old lenses work while I save up for some sexy L glass.

    DSLRs dead? Nah, they're just resting.

    Glass plate negative, box cameras, and other older styles are not even dead yet, there are a few still in use and more in the hands of collectors in working condition.
    I see camera evolution as just that; all camera types are cameras first and therefore will never die out, just move to the next most popular style or type as demands change and tech advances.
