Mirrorless not popular
2 months ago

In an interview with Nikon exec when asked will they create more lenses for mirrorless and is it popular..

"Not yet. According to industry data, camera to lens ratio [attachment rate] is still something like 1:1.3 in the case of mirrorless cameras, and 1:1.7 for DSLRs. So conventional DSLR users buy more lenses. Mirrorless camera users are more likely to purchase the camera with a kit lens and not many people purchase any additional lenses. Some high-end mirrorless users with Sony NEX-7 or Olympus OM-D buy more but the majority of mirrorless users are the entry-class users. Our main target is a bit higher."

This means the shrills who are screaming DSLRs are dead, Sigma is going to produce DSLR lenses. The DPR crowd for mirrorless are a small minority because many of them have lenses other than the kit lens.

It is amazing how such a small minority can scream so loud that it makes you wonder if they are right that mirrorless is going to take over the world. As long as sigma, one of the larger 3rd party produces of lenses is still moslty producing DSLR lenses, mirrorless will never gain tractions and dslrs will go away.

The exec said, not yet, but mirrorless has been out for a long time and still no traction in fact reduction in Americas. The only people really try to push mirrorless are the shrills on DPR. Not even the manufacturers are doing good advertising to bolster sales, perhaps it will be a niche market forever. But that is ok too.
