Down year for cameras affecting rate of product release?

Having recently read that camera sales are off by about 30% world wide. I was wondering if the rate of product releases by camera manufacturers are going to start slowing down. 2014 was Canon's "year of the lens" yet it is about 1/2 gone and only 1 new Canon lens has been announced (16-35 f/4L). All three K-mount lenses on the road map won't be heard from until at least Photokina and some maybe not even in 2014. Canon 7DII & 100-400II are still only rumours (maybe they'll be prototype at the world cup). And Sony is only releasing about 8 more cameras . Okay they are the exception.

Cheers.
