I've been reading about Direct and Indirect Realism lately, and I came across this Stanford Encyclopaedia article.

In the Conclusion section, the article ends with this: "The question, now, is not so much whether to be a direct realist, but how to be one." Given the reputation of Stanford Encyclopaedia on these kinds of topics, it would seem weird to me to end on such a strong leaning towards one side of the debate unless the debate really was settled, and there was a consensus among relevant experts.

On the other hand, this article was in fact written by one or a handful of people, and those people are certainly capable of concluding an article with their own personal beliefs.

So yeah, I would love to know if there's actually a real expert consensus on this topic.
