iirc, dslrs held 100% of the market and mirrorless had 0% a few years back.  now it is 80:20.

Absolutely meaningless statistic.

20% of the interchangeable lens market gets taken up in a few short years, and you call it meaningless.

In the same period of time, the camera used in smartphones have grown to much larger numbers than mirrorless cams. So yes this fact is meaningless. Mirrorless is competing with smartphones and not with dSLRs. Mirrorless's days are numbered, as smartphones are already used much more than mirrorless cams.

that is like saying if hybrids and electric cars take over 20% of the auto market, it's meaningless if other sales remain constant.   in the real world it means that is 20% more sales you could have had but gave way.  which is why everyone now is jumping on the band wagon and putting most of their r&d money into it.

Prove that dslrs are now sold 20% less in numbers or units than when they had 100% market share.  If you can not than again what mirrorless are doing is irrelevant to dslr market because dslr market has grown not shrunk.
