Good analysis Jerry, very well written too.

Nothing for me to disagree with, just a couple of observations.

1 - Non-photographer snap shooters I know used to take mediocre pictures with their point and shoots. Now they take awful pictures with their phones. Maybe there will be a small migration back to stand alone cameras as some folks wish for more than their smart phones can provide.

2 - I don't know what to think of  mirrorless. I rely on general internet buzz to keep me vaguely up to date on what is going on in the camera world. Unfortunately a lot of mirrorless advocates come across as a bit obsessive. I imagine them glassy-eyed, lips flecked with saliva, as they furiously type their predictions of DSLR doom. Maybe they are right, the delivery just doesn't seem credible.
