On reading data (hint: it's not that hard)

Just looking at the data you point out we see that over two years the growth rate of SLRs is not quite 40% whereas for mirrorless it's not quite 100%. In the same time span the share of mirrorless wrt mirrorless plus SLR has gone from not quite 20% to not quite 30%. So I suppose the statement "The rate of increase of mirrorless sales does NOT match that of SLR's" is true -- it's higher. But it takes a bizarrely twisted reading to claim that mirrorless sales are "in fact LOSING ground".

In the bigger picture, who gives a flip? Does anyone really care what anyone else is shooting? Unless, of course, you're a bean counter.
