Phones have cut into the ENTIRE camera business.

This is simply not true. Smartphones have cut into the cheapo point and shoot market only. Tourists all have a DSLR around their necks. Go out and look some time.

Nobody is saying, "Gee I am really torn between a NEX and an iPhone for my photography."

And mirrorless is not in decline, the sales numbers can be fudged any way you like it - but in Asia they are beating DSLRs now. The rest of the world will follow when the technology, price and selection has matured.
