As seen at sansmirror.com, the final numbers are in for mirrorless last year and the results are NOT pretty.  The main mirrorless players are either losing enormous money (Panasonic and Olympus), losing some money (Fujifilm), or barely eeking out a profit (Sony).

Canon and Nikon are profitable, but it is virtually certain that their DSLR sales are carrying that load.

Another bloodbath for the mirrorless makers, leading to the question, will they all survive until next year's financial reports??

9 years of Fujifilm camera usage, ended by rampant fanboyism.

Taking the conclusions of the financial statements as a whole tells you really nothing about the sales or profits of the cameras from Panasonic or Sony.  Unlike Nikon, they do far more than make cameras.

Sony, for instance, is one of the largest Hollywood movie distributors, also one of the large record companies around.

I have a 10" circular saw blade and a microwave make by Panasonic. Which is a division of Matsushita electronic, that also builds in flight entertainment systems along with involvement in countless other industries.

But I guess if you need some reason to bash "mirrorless" cameras, cause you think the future of technology involves a mirror, more power to you, the bottom line fits the story.
