Not sure of the correlation. Are DLSR sales off because of economy/cell phones/technology maturity or pressure from mirrorless? I think mirrorless sales will be hurt more by the cell phones than DSLR's will. And from the bleak economic future from most of the mirrorless group, I think it's obvious they are not picking up enough sales from Nikon/canon to make much of a difference, if at all.

Personally, I think people don't trust the economy, their high end cameras are good enough, with only incremental increases available. And cell phones are decimating small cameras. Mirrorless is not in a good position, either.

I think Nikon/Canon are developing techology, retrenching, and with profits and with secure amounts of cash can afford to wait out the market shakeout for abit.
