Differences in curves between mirrorless and DSLR is intriguing
In reply to MichaelKJ, Apr 27, 2013

The buying curves are quite different between DSLR's and Mirrorless:

- DSLR's reach a peak in the summer

- Mirrorless peak around Christmas and in Spring

My guess is that the vast majority of DSLR's are being bought by consumers who need a "decent" camera to go on holiday. New releases have little impact - Nikon D5100 owners are not eagerly awaiting the release of the D5200.

And I think that Mirrorless is mostly being bought by enthusiasts who are very interested in new models. Each new generation brings significant improvements.

I don't really follow Mirrorless very closely but it seems to me that there haven't been very many new Mirrorless models released recently so that may have slowed sales.
