I don't preorder, I'm not a paid beta tester!

In the context of my original comment. that was in response to another comment, I was just pointing out that even with these seemingly dire reductions in numbers looking at range limited data belies the historical market numbers. If camera buyers can be motivated with new releases, as the R5 and R6 seemingly are and the Sony A7S III almost certain to do as well, even at the reduced sales volume I believe the ILC market Is still sustainable.That's in units sold, and ignoring smartphones, levels have returned to those of the mid-nineties, the market is shrinking, and that's in face of population growth. I don't envy camera manufacturers' position.
