Canon has completely failed at mirrorless cameras. Meanwhile, competitors like Olympus and Sony have both embraced and excelled at the format, which gives you DSLR quality images in a significantly smaller, and mirror-free body.

The thing about software is that it's... soft. Malleable! You can add neato things to it that make products better. Camera makers usually update a device's firmware with bug fixes and supposed "performance increases". Not so with the upcoming December update to Fujfilm's X-T1 mirrorless camera. It's replete with fancy new abilities.
