why the growth didn't taper as fast as predicted.

I think because the predictors have missed something about this new market for DSLRs - they are being bought by a lot of geeks who wouldn't have wanted a film SLR, and they live and die by having the latest equipment.

Everyone in my office was absolutely drooling over the 1D3, and we're not "photographers" in any professional sense (we're software developers), but I can bet there'll be a few sales of it there. There's no way they would have bought into the film SLR market at that level, but digital totally changes the game.
