As seen at sansmirror.com, the final numbers are in for mirrorless last year and the results are NOT pretty.  The main mirrorless players are either losing enormous money (Panasonic and Olympus), losing some money (Fujifilm), or barely eeking out a profit (Sony).

Canon and Nikon are profitable, but it is virtually certain that their DSLR sales are carrying that load.

Another bloodbath for the mirrorless makers, leading to the question, will they all survive until next year's financial reports??

9 years of Fujifilm camera usage, ended by rampant fanboyism.

Given what I've read recently, about new lines of lenses, as well as new versions of mirrorless cameras, I find this very hard to believe. Could it be that these companies are losing money overall, due to other factors? It doesn't make any sense that they'd be doing what they are currently doing if they are losing money on these cameras. You know, a lot of the fiscal reports from large corporations with multiple product lines has more to do with the gyrations of their stock than it does the profits they are making from the actual products they make.
