    The one note/question about your declining math year-after-year is that I think none of these companies are expecting the industry to bounce back, so it's like why do they keep making different cameras if they are losing so much money?

    I think they're going to consolidate either by merging or by dropping out of the industry altogether and, naturally, they will be cutting the overhead and slashing the payrolls. Sony will probably be the last brand standing because they are making the majority of sensors anyway and there'll be enough demand to keep, at least, couple of plants open.

    I mentioned in some other, similar, thread that the upcoming generation of smartphones with their 48-64-108 megapixel main sensors and 5X optical zooms (with upscaling into 30X, though above 10-15X, they can look blocky) will be a big test. On purely technical performance, aka pixel peeping, the ILC's will still be superior but it won't matter to a casual user/Facebook/Instagram poster one bit. If the units shipped don't collapse, then there's still a future for the ILC enthusiasts. If they do, it'll be a pro market only, maybe medium format and full frame.

    On the positive side, a medium format 200 MPX camera will be selling for $1,500 in three year time

    Speed photographers won't be using phones anytime soon, but once phones get shallow DOF dialed in - real with modules or fake with software, doesn't matter - it's just about a wrap for everything else.

    Why are DSLRs still made at all? Why has the complete move to mirrorless cameras not happened faster?
