Continuation of CSC (Compact System Camera) in retreat

Why the obsession?

There are two simple truths:

  • MILC cameras are here to stay. This is a new tool with it's own advantages.

  • DSLR cameras are not going away anytime soon. They have their advantages too.

I really don't understand why you are obsessed with making this a contest between two different camera formats. Both will enjoy strong sales for the foreseeable future because both have their own target markets.

Saying "CSC is in retreat" is just as silly as saying "DSLRs are dead."

SUVs did not end the sale of sedans and coupes.
Microwave ovens did not end the sale of conventional ovens.
Electric razors did not end the sales of traditional razors.
The pneumatic nail gun did not obsolete the hammer.

There is room in the marketplace for more than one, two or three different things.

It's time to grow up, HappyVan.
Your obsession with this topic borders on trolling.
