Even if they stopped making DSLR's today most of the one's now in circulation will still be around many years from now; I have an almost 12 year old 5D Mark ii I still use often, it still works great. In 12 more years from now my other newer DSLR's (80D and 6D2) and likely even my old 5D Mark ii will still be around working great, these camera's will probably out live me....Yes!

You are the one who has an issue with numbers.You are abusing math to support your conclusions.
No, that simply means that the average per unit cost of DSLRs is lower than the average per unit cost of MILCs. You don't know the actual value of the units being sold... the actual numbers of units sold...the price difference between units...etc. You simply don't have sufficient information to draw your conclusion.
High end camera sales are cyclical, not annual.You are the one who has an issue with numbers.
It has nothing to do with unit cost, the values are a direct comparison of the previous years numbers. MILCs have nothing to do with it. The value of DSLRs being moved is dramatically lower than the corresponding number for units being moved. That means that the high end of the DSLR market is tanking. The prices of cameras are not going down by corresponding amounts, and manufacturing costs certainly would not be coming down either, so the only way to account for the disproportionate decrease in value is that the high value units are not moving.
