Old Cameras: “Wilderness” seems like a slight exaggeration. Looks like Texas hill country or parts of New Mexico.

By the legal definition, there are 5 wilderness areas in Texas and a lot more than that in New Mexico, just FYI. By your definition, several of the Texas ones wouldn't qualify, but at least Guadalupe Mountains should. Anyway, I was just curious how you could tell from the photos that it isn't wilderness...that type of scenery definitely exists in wilderness areas, by any definition.

I'm curious what you think "wilderness" means...

ozturert: And they report 5% decrease in revenue in the first 3 months. They also reported 8% lower revenue in the last 3 months of 2018.
Revenue increase comes from the second and third quarters of 2018. In the last 6 months there is loss.
The trend is downwards for Sony, just like the others.

ozturert, you said "They also reported 8% lower revenue in the last 3 months of 2018." Where do you see that? 8% lower compared to what, Q2 of 2018 or Q3 of 2017?

jscalev: The thing that I find confusing in this chart is Sony has two cameras with a III designation - the a7 III and the a7r III. Does this chart imply that
a) The a7r3 sales are marginal? OR
b) They're combining a7 III and a7r3 sales?

The second appears more likely, which then begs the question why they aren't combining the EOS RP and the EOS R - since they have the same similarities.

Of course, a likely reason for this is the chart wouldn't be so clear. It would show the EOS R significantly outselling the a7 III in March, and being considerably closer at around 27% in April. This being despite the fact that the cameras were just introduced and lack the native lenses, dynamic range, and several features of the a7 III cameras.

There are also the questions of why DPReview chose these few weeks, and whether Sony had any promotions in Japan for April.

So, despite DPReview obviously being paid here to play with graphs to make things look grand for Sony, they still have a lot to worry about.

As pointed out several times above (and in the original post by DPR), these are the top 5 sellers, so the a7riii and Z7 don't make the cut. Regarding the timeframe, as far as I can tell BCN releases these sales numbers on a monthly basis, and in this case it's the month since the RP was released. Seems to make perfect sense to me, and has nothing to do with DPR at any rate since they don't collect the data or produce the graph.
