Well worth a look http://www.dslrbodies.com/newsviews/a-different-view-of-the.html

Two charts, one for total sale, and one by manufacture. Things are a lot worse than many of us thought.

Thom Hogan says: My suspicion at this point is that this is going to be a Christmas filled with rebates and sales. In other words, all that optimism the Japanese companies seem to have about 2017 being better than 2016 is going to get a strong dose of force feeding to make it come true.

The problem as I see it, will people buy unwanted cameras at any price. I sorta doubt it, but I may be wrong.

I have no idea how that can be numbers and what it means absolutely or in percentages. Can't they show some actual arabic numbers on tables?
I suppose that is not good for those in the industry, but is there anything new?

Hogan wrote Basically the camera maker's primary goal these days is existential: continue to exist. It used to be that you could try to be a big fish in the big pond, or try to build a smaller pond you could be a big fish in. But water is scarce now. Everyone is in the small pond, big fish and small.

The pond is actually bigger than it's ever been. Problem for the traditional players is that it is full of smartphones.

And used product that's 95% as good but selling for half the price.

Begs the question. Should I buy a 24-70mm f2.8L II or wait for an iPhone 8?

If your happy with your big/bulky DSLR, buy the lens. My guess is iPhone 10 before they have that long of a zoom
