What advantages, if any, does mirrorless have over mirror? If you were going to upgrade would you go to mirrorless.

I use Nikon cameras and have since 1972. I have no desire or interest in changing to mirrorless. I see no personal advantage in doing so. I do have one mirrorless that I use quite often but attach it to a mirrored body.

i shoot a lot of sports and I value the increased frame rate and focus speed. The image quality isn't that much better than my D5, I just get a few more of them. It can be a blessing but also a curse as I have more to cull! LOL.

Assuming you are looking to justify an upgrade, I would recommend you strongly consider staying with what you have until YOU know how YOUR photography would benefit.

Rent if in doubt.

When you are way past the SS year (65) and have a working camera system, a new design is of no interest except to read about. I invested in Mirrorless years ago (as fixed lens), learned its advantages, and am very happy now with DSLRs that provide consistent good print quality at 8x10".
Mirrorless makes a lot more sense than a clunky mirror flapping up and down, but as an amateur photographer I do not need any of the improvements made in the last five years.

Actually you need to check the mirrorless out to answer your question. You have to go to a store which has the Z's cameras.

"What advantages, if any, does mirrorless have over mirror?"

Many and one of the members posted a link with plenty of information. In general the cameras are smaller, lighter and the short clearance between the rear of the lens and the sensor allows for better clarity and resolution.
Technology is far superior to what we have with mirror cameras. Many other attributes that I will not mention.

In regard to updating nobody has to switch to mirrorless if happy with present dSLR cameras.

I have a mirrorless Nikon 1 J1 and so I find out that the focus is governed by the sensor which is an advantage over mirror cameras.

"Mirrorless Camera Calibration
Because of their unique design these cameras stand apart in their ease of use both as IR only and as full spectrum converted cameras. Since they are mirrorless they rely completely on the imaging sensor for all aspects of the image capture process, including focus and metering. Because of this they are able to “see” the IR focus shift real time and adjust for this on the fly while focusing. This allows you the freedom to use pretty much any micro four thirds lens and still achieve sharp images. "

I'm slow to move on new technology. Just wait until it is enough of an improvement on what I already have. The D40 was such a camera in 2007 when I at last saw digital could be reasonably priced and have advantages over my F3 and FM2. From there, the D5100 in 2012, then the D750 in 2017. Now, Nikon seems to be getting close (in 2 years' time) to a reasonably priced mirrorless camera. I'll bide my time, and may have to compromise my requirements of having a built-in flash, but for those times, I'll keep my D750 handy.

I have no interest either , but a friend of mine bought one [ he is a good photographer ] , i had it in my hands for 10 minutes on a photo outing , gave it back to him and said , if i hold it any longer , i am going to have to buy one .It is just different in a good way . So dont try it , you will like it .

If you can, you should. And if you're brave enough to start, you will. Put that mirrorless camera in your digital shopping cart and become a better photographer today.
