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

Re: Sales have been anormally high for digital! Now returning to normal!

To some extent, I think your point is well taken--especially for ILCs.  However, by far the best selling ILCs have been entry level models and I'm not sure how many of those represent repeat ILC buyers.  I think a lot of people in recent years upgraded from a P&S to an entry level DSLR or mirrorless and decided that they don't need anything better.

The biggest drop has been in P&S sales. I think it is clear that this is largely due to smartphones. I also know a lot of people who are happy with their P&S and have no desire to upgrade (e.g., my wife loves her S95 and could care less about any of the advantages offered by newer models).
