Just been on an "all over Europe" vacation, and spotted these trends: Pocketable compact cameras are clearly dead. The "snaps only" people are using smartphones (or tablets, which still looks stupid). The most popular actual cameras are compact superzooms. Germans like Canon DSLRs. French and Italians prefer Nikon DSLRs. Brits have a mix of both. Far Eastern tourists prefer NEX/E Mount/what it's called this week. Saw 4 other Olympus m43 users, 2 PENs and 2 OMDs, half European and half Far Eastern owners. And one solitary Lumix G, a GH2, that a Dutch guy had.
