Thanks for this article.

What they say is true, just the title is a bit way off.  ;)

Actually, the DSLR market is threatened in Japan by mirrorless systems, but not only by Sony NEX (Japanese usually don't trust in Sony brand), also by µ4/3 system, more popular in older (and richer) japanese population.

For the latest sells informations in Japan, you can check this link: http://bcnranking.jp/category/subcategory_0008.html
Canon 5D MkII + 24-105mm f/4L + 70-200mm f/4L IS + 35mm f/1.4L + 85mm f/1.2L + 135mm f/2L + Sigma 50mm f/1.4EX + Samyang 14mm f/2.8

Misleading headline. Not dismissing the argument that mirrorless systems are cutting into the DSLR market and the article correctly points out that Canon and Nikon need to enter that market.

I just hope when Canon does so, they make something more along the lines of the Fuji Film systems, rather than Sony. An interchangeable lens Canon version of the X100 would have me pulling out the charge card for sure.

It would have been useful if they could show how DSLR unit and revenue sales have progressed since the introduction of mirrorless. They're using the "interchangeable lens" shares for headlines and it is inevitable they will eat into the existing share if they define it that way. Moving from counting from DSLRs only, to DSLRs + something else, the DSLR share can only go down by that calculation. The question is are they being bought instead of DSLRs, in addition to DSLRs, or instead of something else?

And are they really comparing the Pentax Q to a SLR?...
