Camera sales are falling and it's partially our fault.

So what?

I don't owe the camera industry anything. They don't owe ME anything! They produce what they want to produce, and I buy what I want to buy; if those two things aren't in alignment, somebody goes home unhappy.  I haven't bought a mirrorless camera because I simply didn't think they met my needs; as a result the camera industry is having to do without my disposable income.  Now, it seems they are starting to produce what I want, so maybe it's time to get back into the market.

The market is much bigger than a bunch of bozos on a photography forum.  People aren't buying cameras because they are CONFUSED about anything, they aren't buying because they don't believe the cameras available meet their needs.  And even if they ARE confused, it isn't my job to pimp for the manufacturers, to convince possible buyers that the available cameras will meet their needs.

I got no dog in that hunt.
