    if it is the same photographer behind both a DSLR and a DSLR - like camera, then the answer would be no
    but on certain situation where great DOF is needed the DSLR - like camera will be easier to use

    Technically speaking, it cannot act as an SLR as long as it does not have a reflex mechanism inside to reflect what you see thru the lens to your viewfinder via pentaprism/pentamirror.

    Quality wise, ortega has pretty much covered.

    Just to add.. which would mean that the camera will be using the same sensor for preview, autofocus and capturing the image, so the AF would be slower and shutter lag longer than a true DSLR.

    SLR-like or not, shoot some pics and post
    The 570 should be a load of fun.
