Re: Figures show mirrorless gaining ground?

The figures in the graph are difficult to estimate but my best guess is as follows:

Mirrorless 2012: 3.75m  2013: 4.8m  Growth +28%

DSLR 2012: 16.25m  2013:  17.7m  Growth  +9%

Mirrorless % DSLR sales: 2012  23%  2013  27%

Surely mirrorless sales are growing faster than DSLR sales.

(If my calculations are wrong will somebody correct me, please)

Single year, you may well be right - I haven't checked your calculations.

The trend curves tell a different story, though. The question is, which is more plausible? The latest single year number. Or the trend curve. The answer is not obvious. The latest year numbers may be a fluke. Or they may be a harbinger of a change in the trend.
