...and even that is rapidly changing. For studio work there is now the
Fujifilm GFX50S with MF sensor, and some very good glass. When it comes to
AF-S/AF-C and tracking, the X-T2, and X-E3 are not far behind DSLR
performance, and in some comparisons, not all, might even be considered
better.


True. But we'll still see the BWLs (big white lenses) at sporting events
for a long time. The faster auto-focus and OVF are essential.

Japan doesn't want a chinese or Korean company taking over Nikon.


Aside from national pride, are there any other reasons a Chinese or
Korean company shouldn't be buying Nikon? Do Nikon make any military
items for instance?

Is that really faster? Mirrorless cameras have a huge advantage because
their sensors see the scene all the time, analyse it all the time and
can focus much better on moving targets.
Mirrored cameras instead are essentially blind all the time and have to
rely on limited AF sensors.

they're not blind nor are they limited.

in general, slr autofocus is faster, for a variety of reasons.
