No I'm looking way back beyond that date. The boom was just that a blip, but pre digital they sold more ILC's in the mid 80's onwards. So the market is dying, probably sped up with fairly hefty prices on new gear (bodies and lenses), mix in the phones, bargain buyers who still get gear but won't pay high prices (tons of s/h stuff around)

= continued decline of the industry for years ahead

I remember buying a SLR in 1991 and being told how they were under pressure from p&s cameras.  So not a new phenomenon but how long can a dedicated ILC system last?  Years?  Decades?  I honestly do not know...
