No surprise there at all. After all that is why these camera makers are appealing to novice users. The sales figures are misleading though since, as another poster mentioned, they don't take into account the number of these cameras that are returned.

This phenomenon will change though when people begin to realize that they don't need a DSLR to get the type of results they want. Once the novelty wears off and manufacturers stop advertising these cameras people will also realize that these large cameras with costly replaceable lenses are not much of a pleasure to carry around just to take snap shots of family and special occasions or the occasional picture of flowers and buildings etc, or 4x6 inch prints to put in an album.
