To the TS,
Maybe this is of help to you as you may be totally lost with all the terminology used. As mentioned before, the world doesnt only revolve around Nikon and Canon. I use mirrorless and am totally happy with m4/3.
You have Olympus PEN, Pansonic Lumix, Sony NEX, Samsung NX, etc.. all basically capable of MF and have focus points lighting up !
You need to read and understand what you want, i.e. what will you be shooting, in what conditions etc.. then go down to any large camera shop or HN or Courts or Best denki etc and actually see and feel.
