Re: revenues down the same as units (but about 19%, not 43%)

The figures still aren't broken down by type of mirrorless mount or brand so it doesn't prove either way whether Mft sales/shipments are up or down, the drop could actually be down to just 1 or 2 brands sliding eg Pentax q or Nikon 1

good news an mFT tops the charts bad news it’s the heavily discounted G3 { still a good buy } and there is only one other mFT camera in the top 100

2 mFT models in the top 100 both older G3 and e-pm1

Even Flickr lets you down, there are 4,401,655 images from the D800 compared to the E-M5 at 2,390,479 even though the D800 costs double what the E-M5 does and DSLR’s are dead, not bad for just over the year though . The D7000 however has just over 15,000,000 images a year.

For anyone other than Youdidnt this post is made as a joke , to mention Flickr groups as an indicator of sales is pretty amusing,
