A surprising lack of detail and context

Q1 2012, the only body M43 had that qualified as a high end body was the GH2... maybe... as it's main purpose was video. At that time, the hot selling bodies were the G3 and EPL2.

Since then, we've had the EM5 which has really transformed the M43 scene, and the GH3. Plus quite a few high end lenses: 75 1.8, 12-35, 35-100, 17 1.8... a bit more expensive than kit grade zooms.

So instead of raw figures, perhaps we can see revenue? My guess is, it won't reflect nearly as much of a dip, if any at all, due to the fact that, while fewer units were shipped, they were, on the average, more high end bodies and lenses, because there are a lot more of both now than there were a year ago. Plus, with the debut of the EM5, a lot of advanced amateurs and even pros started buying into the system.

I wonder what Hogan is up to, with these sorts of half done analyses. Either he has very little understanding of statistics, or it's skewed to make mirrorless look bad.

Some people are getting really weird about this mirrorless and M43 thing - look at some of the silly threads on open talk. Maybe he's trying to cash in on the dslr paranoia.
