fullstop said:The pent-up demand notion has a certain wacky elegance. People are not buying more cameras because the cameras are not good enough or cheap enough. When cameras are good enough and cheap enough, then people will buy a lot more cameras.
But what people actually buy is the capability to make images. So it comes down to what image-making capability do people want to buy and how much do they want to pay for it. It may be true that DSLR designs are pretty much maxed out and that mirrorless manufacturers have never really gotten their act together, but that doesn't go to the question of how much image making capability people want to buy and what they are willing to pay for it. I don't see much reason to think that improvements in mirrorless design are going to lead to increased sales.
