In the last years, SPHERE has revolutionized the field of planet formation. Also thanks to Subaru/HiCiao, GPI, and VLT/NACO, the number of protoplanetary disks observed in near-IR scattered light now amounts to more than 100. This census reveals, similarly to ALMA, the high occurrence of disk sub-structures that are likely due to the gravitational interaction with (forming) planets. Yet, the sample is biased toward massive disks around relatively old stars. I will show how our community is alleviating these biases through the SPHERE large programs DARTTS, published, and DESTINYS, ongoing. Also, I will discuss a few specific cases where VLT/ERIS can complement the sample of imaged disks by detecting and characterizing (forming) planets that have remained concealed to SPHERE.
