There m4/3 efforts are healthy. To bad you are scared for some competition.

The chart you posted is titled "Mirrorless Composition Ratio". It is *not* titled "M4/3 Composition Ratio".

Of the 14.3% claimed mirrorless camera share in North America, I suspect that most of them are Nikon 1 and Sony NEX. One reason I say that, is that they are visible and backed by an advertising budget. In the USA, m4/3 is a pretty obscure niche.

"Panasonic expects a net loss of 765 billion yen ($7.8 billion) for the year to March 2013". They are not exactly a powerhouse that generates fear in others.

I have absolutely no idea what 'mirrorless composition ratio' is but I suspect that it is Mirrorless as a % of the ILC (DSLR + mirrorless) market.

Based on the Cipa data mirrorless sold 743k of units in the US last year which accounted for 15.4% of total ILC units sold and 13.1% in terms of value. For the whole North American digital camera market (so including compacts) mirrorless accounted for 2.55% of the total in terms of units and 5.81% in terms of value.

It isnt really surprising that you dont see a lot of them about.
