Just some random comments...
  • Where in the world is RS? Anyone know? (dont say Russia, thats RU)

  • The UK is the european market that has accepted miirrorless the most, by far (and to think the rest of the world thinks us Brits are old fashioned traditionalists)

  • The Yanks are late to the party. Again. As always. Of course mirrorless goes against this "bigger=better" mentality that US people seem to apply to everything (cars, buildings, waistlines...)

  • NEX really shot out of the gate in Japan, wow. And there are mirrorless market share jumps around its launch in all the other Asian markets as well (elsewhere in the world the gain was much more gradual). It seems to be the most popular "single brand" of Mirrorless in Japan (again, the graphs have been chopped before the C3 and 5N were available, so I'd expect it to be back up to 20%). The shared mount is all thats keeping O+P ahead. And oddly, NEX seems to have stolen share mainly from Nikon!

  • APS-C DSLRs are doomed, clearly. Not that the press pool at the Superbowl will care, in fact they will be happy, Canikon will go back to putting all efforts into FF lenses.
