According to the outlook for 2012 issued by CIPA (Camera & Imaging Products Association in Japan) the total sales of Interchangeable Lens Digital Cameras is expected to reach 18.3 million units this year.

CIPA did not release any forecast on the sales of the "mirrorless" cameras in this 18.3 million however the following chart by DPReview indicates the general trend in several markets in the period between October 2011 to December 2011. One can easily note how the sales of "non-reflex" interchangeable-lens cameras are eating into the share of total sales of SLRs in all markets.

The most remarkable side of this report: Japan; where in the last three months the mirrorless sold as much as the SLRs!..

Was this something you expected?
