if you look at the trend, you can figure out who is buying these cameras (almost). it looks like mirorless cameras are bought mostly as a gift or a hobby item (peaks around US tax refund time and Christmas shopping season). DSLRs peaked in the summer. I'd suspect it has something to do with most weddings taking place then, but I might be wrong.

As Thom Hogan noted, the peak last year probably reflected large initial shipments of OM-D, NEX-7, GX-1 and X-Pro1.

The OMD didn't start retailing until late April 2012 and the GX1  didn't start hitting retailers in significant numbers also until April 2012.

Who was pushing out loads of mirrorless stock ( not mft) in quarter 1 of 2012 (and q4 of 2011) that they then had to mark down by 60% in q3 and then failed again with their V2,J2 and S1???
