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.

obviously.  p&s sales are awful because of that. but since smartphones don't have zoom lenses or native lenses you can't change, they have nothing to so with what I said.

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

no one said that.  only you because you can't understand what I said.  dslr sales increased slightly over the past few years, but the market increased by well over 20%.   this is why the smart guys at nikon and canon jumped on the mirrorless band wagon and are spending much to develop those new systems.  they know where the market it heading.
