I think that's the way the industry will move. Your iPhone ain't got squat on one of these cameras and point and shoots they are not.

a camera is optical device, and its quality is all about its ability to catch the light, so the sensor and the lenses are the most important.
I don't see any bad reason to switch to mirror-less camera, and if it is me, I would go for the Canon EOS M, sensor is one of the best in its class, and good lenses can be used via adapters.

I won't say I don't miss my D300 a little bit. I mean when I did shoot it, it felt like a serious camera...made me feel like a "real" photographer. It feels different with the NEX. Still feels like I have a serious piece of equipment in my hands when shooting, but not that same feeling when you have a DSLR. But the size and weight reduction is well worth the loss of that feeling I got with the DSLR and once I get used to the camera, I won't be loosing any photo quality. If anything, it should increase considering I'll likely be using better glass and the camera has a better sensor.
