The figures quoted in the linked article mean very little. Are we asked to compare Panasonic mirrorless sales against all DSLR sales ? Panasonic don't make DSLRs so why aren't total mirrorless sales quoted ?

Agreed. But he has posted comprehensive data in the past and mirrorless has never reached or exceeded SLR sales.

If DSLR sales are steady & not in decline would that be very surprising ?

No it would not.  Canon and Nikon have had very good sales selling millions of SLR's and lenses.

The DSLR format (do the figures include SLTs ?) has been around for a longtime whereas compact mirrorless designs are fairly new & the associated technology is still developing rapidly.

It's too early to be clear as to which format is going to become ( stay) dominant & all such considerations are further complicated by the World economic situation which is impacting on all markets at the moment.

PS - don't understand your comments about fanboyism ? Do you let the opinions of others unduly bias your own attitudes & opinions ?

9 years of Fujifilm camera usage, ended by rampant fanboyism.
