From what I can tell, mirror-less cameras are selling like hotcakes, and where is Canon or Nikon in that market space?
It all depends on where you live. In SoCal the Sony NEX is easy to buy (Sony Stores), A few camera stores have a few Fuji X, Olympus and Panasonic are special order from most stores.
Here's something Thom Hogan posted a while back: "I've tried to point out that things weren't quite so wonderful in terms of mirrorless camera sales before, and some of you haven't believed me." CIPA shipment numbers for both Mirrorless and DSLRs http://www.sansmirror.com/newsviews/april-2013/mirrorless-shipments-down.html
From what little I've seen is some Pros are switching from DSLRs to mirrorless, but not many consumers. Me. I've taken ALL my SLRs (both film and digital) off of my Business Insurance. I'll be renting cameras by the job, ie what ever is the right tool (Canon 5D3, Nikon D800, Panasonic GH3, MFD). Hopefully someone will release a camera (and lenses) that I want to buy before the year is out.
