What do you consider MILC?
In reply to HappyVan, 8 months ago

With the arrival of the A7/r, we now have MILC cameras with sensors that range from the 1/1.7" Pentax Q to FF.  However, you rely on data that overwhelmingly reflect sales/shipments of the small MILCs made primarily by Olympus, Panasonic & Sony.

Smaller sensor MILCs have a size advantage that, at a minimum, will allow them to continue to survive as an option for those of us who place a premium on size and weight.  However, the companies making these cameras are going through a difficult time and it remains to be seen whether this segment of the market will blossom or be relegated to serving a niche market.

The question of whether DSLRs will eventually be replaced (for the most part) with FF MILCs is a different question.  At this point, sales/shipment data are lacking and meaningless for attempting to answer this question.
