Re: Mirrorless shipments surge....

What intrigues me is the degree to which some people seem to derive a sense of worth from whether their preferred type of camera is surging or sagging in sales.

"OMG, more people are buying mirrorless, which I don't like. It must mean that one day, the World Government Camera Gestapo will come to my door and confiscate all my DSLRs and force me to use mirrorless!" or at least give said person some sense that he is on the "losing team" by preferring a dslr.

or the opposite

"My choice to prefer mirrorless is validated by the latest sales figures. Hence, I have earned my place in the Vanguard of Photographic Hipsterists by buying into the future before most people recognized it. I am the sort of photographer others admire, (but won't admit to it.)" or at least they have an ointment to apply to any wounds of doubt over their choice.

Funny, really, when you actually strip away some of the pretense people use to compare their camera of choice to others.

If, in my lifetime, I will have produced just one image that makes a real difference in the life of another, I will have achieved my highest goal as a photographer.
