I don't think it's any coincidence that ILCs immediately began to fall in sales a bit later (they peaked in 2012). There is a strong argument for causation IMO.

Correlation is not causation. There are plenty of other reasons too.

2012 is when Sony's EXMOR CMOS sensor went mainstream across many FF and APSC sensors, with on-chip ADCs and low read noise. If you look at the numbers on DxOMark, there has not been a major improvement in IQ since that point.

Actually the Sony on chip ADC dates back to 2010 with the 16mp sensor used in cameras like the Nikon D7000, Sony A55 and the Pentax K-5.

Yes. So by 2012 it was mainstream (ie in most of the new cameras sold, except Canon).

And markets don't decline until the next evolution when people start realising there isn't any real difference.

It's all in the numbers.
