I mentioned this loads of times over the last few years in this very forum was slated by many DSLR users.

Canikon have sold many of their customers a false dream in that you can spend £500-1500 of your hard earned money on one of their cameras and easily get the photos you want.

To the ordinary consumer they are hard to use: white balance, exposure, poky little tunnel like viewfinder, focusing etc are a minefield.They attempt to take their cameras off auto and it all goes pear shaped.Also now consumers are more use to shooting WYSIWYG with the LCDs on their smart phones etc.

If you bring a DSLR to any kind of family event you are seeing as the old awkward uncle type no matter your actual age or sex with your old awkward big DSLR.

Another point  is that DSLRs are seen as the SOLE property of its owner while micro four thirds cameras and their lenses are frequently and happily shared.

LOL. Are you serious?

With micro four thirds new sharing capabilities they will continue to get market share from DSLRs...

Do you make this up as you go?

living life to the Four Thirds!
