2014 is going to be the year of the MILC
8 months ago

In the last month or so, the awareness and discussion of the MILC concept has gathered momentum. I think it is starting to reach real takeoff point that will translate into a significant jump in the proportion of MILC to dslr models sold. The article by Michael Rechman on the FF myth is already being discussed in a different thread. The real winner of the discussion is MILC overall.

Take today's Phil Steele blog on traveling with a MILC v a trad camera. http://steelevisions.com/blog/fuji-x100s/ The camera he used doesn't matter, again the real winner is MILC. Check today's fun headline story on The Online photographer. Even Rockwell last week had positive thibgs to say about the new breed http://www.kenrockwell.com/sony/a7.htm

Again, the camera brand doesn't matter. What is significant is that a whole class of camera is coming of age and entering the consciousness in a significant way of the photographic market. And that will translate into a rising proportion of sales to MILC.

Note that I said "proportion". I am not as certain that the overall serious camera market is going to grow.
