An interesting take by T. Hogan:

"unit shipments to North America of mirrorless cameras were only 69% in 2013 what they were in 2012. As you might expect, Asia was the big winner with flat to slightly up volume depending upon which part of Asia, though surprisingly shipments to Europe were 98% compared to last year. Somewhere in Japan there are lot of executives trying to figure out why the Americans don't want mirrorless cameras. Hint:two of the primary players (Olympus and Panasonic) have poor dealer and Big Box reach in the US: buyers just don't see them like they do Canon and Nikon DSLRs. The third big mirrorless player (that would be Sony) does better in visibility, but it's still the third player in most stores. To paraphrase, uh excuse me, parody, a TV ad here for one of the mirrorless players "small is the new invisible."

LOL.
