Can I just say I told you so Mft mirrorless has been stronger in the last 3 months of the year. I believe Olympus, Panasonic and Fuji are racing ahead of their mirrorless rivals, DSLRs are slowly dying and compacts are in total free fall.

Yes, well it is perhaps wise to put a bit of perspective on the statistics.

In September

Compacts = 12x mirroless unit sales

DSLRs = 4x mirrorless sales.

For the first 9 months mirrorless = about 10% of the digital camera market.

Total shipments of mirrorless in the first 9 months of the year were approximate US$720m worldwide. With 8 manufacturers in the market, that means each manufacturer has shipped less than an average of US$100m of mirrorless.

Really mirrorless only makes up something of a rounding error in the market.
