Nice piece overall, but it sounds like the author doesn't know or care much about mirrorless cameras.

1) Mirrorless cameras still go "click." They have mechanical shutters

2) No one think contrast detection autofocus is slow any more -- the best examples are actually faster than many DSLRs phase detection. Although it's undoubtedly an advantage for Olympus to add phase detection, the main reason is another feature of the camera -- its ability to use micro four thirds lenses.

3) "Serious" photographers like viewfinders, but absolutely will compose in an LCD
