There is a certain amount of summary castigation here—Canon bears the brunt of it, coming a year after the Nikon D810—but in light of the fanatical and fantastic advances at Sony*, Canon and Nikon had better be castigated and see the light soon—because the DSLR feature set always had some issues and still does and won’t get better doing same-old a little better. Put less ardently, the popularity of mirrorless is not a fluke. Your author does not expect a DSLR to become a mirrorless camera (though that too should be done with compatible lens mount), but the insistence on rear LCD and no EVF option at all is, for starters, all but unforgiveable in 2015.
* Sony reportedly claims to autofocus as fast as on a Canon DSLR on the A7R II using Canon EF lenses with the Sony lens adapter.

Diglloyd DAP is DSLR-oriented, but also contains workflow and other topics. Much of the focus is on Canon and Nikon but also Pentax and Pentax medium format.
Special emphasis is placed on lens evaluation, focusing on Canon and Nikon and Sigma lenses, but with a few others like Rokinon/Samyang.
- Make better images by learning how to get the best results right away.
- Save money by choosing the right lens for your needs the first time, particularly some of the new Sigma Art lenses vs Nikon and Canon.
- Workflow discusses image organization, raw conversion and post processing. Many examples show processing parameters for direct insight into how the image was converted.
- Jaw-dropping image quality found nowhere else utilizing Retina-grade images up to full camera resolution, plus large crops [past 2 years or so].
- Real world examples with insights found nowhere else. Make sharper images just by understanding lens behavior you won’t read about elsewhere.
- Aperture series from wide open through stopped down, showing the full range of lens performance and bokeh.
- Optical quality analysis of field curvature, focus shift, sharpness, flare, distortion, and performance in the field.
