If mirrorless shipments are up in the US, for example, I sure didn't see any evidence of it on Monday when I went down to B&H Photo in NYC. I had my new X-E1 with me.

I cant really quantify how totally insignificant your personal experience is in NYC

But really I might berate people who turn personal observation into objective fact.

Perhaps you missed where I wrote:

"Of course this is just anecdotal evidence, but I did notice a ton of people happily walking around Manhattan with their DSLRs."

Anecdotal

adjective - (of an account) not necessarily true or reliable, because based on personal accounts rather than facts or research : while there was much anecdotal evidence there was little hard fact | these claims were purely anecdotal

The point is I think there is a tendency on some online forums to assume that everybody prioritizes small size in cameras, but outside of these forums in the real world there does seem to be a large segment of the population who grew up with SLRs and don't consider them burdensomely heavy.

I never said anything about facts.
