Visit tourist spots that attract large numbers of young Asians and you'll notice many more young women with DSLRs than you've ever before. Your 'old man' theory is showing its age already. Besides, older men who have started to find it difficult to carry DSLR outfits are a key market for mirrorless miniaturisation. It's not entirely coincidental that there's so much emphasis on retro styling in some mirrorless model lines. The baby boomers get what they want - strength in numbers.

Very true.  The young kids here in china all have DSLR's for the most part.  I can't emphasize this enough. When you go to the camera mall here in Shanghai, there are a few stores that carry mirrorless like micro 4/3rds.  There are dozens upon dozens of stores that carry Canon, Nikon, and Sony SLR's.  The shelf space ratio is beyond lopsided in favor of DSLR's and mirrorless struggles to even get noticed.

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