Arising from another thread, I was wondering why the mirrorless market in the US and to a lesser degree in Europe, is so poorly received. I've seen charts etc on worldwide sales and the Asian market is where mirrorless dominates, I don't know where it resides in the Australia/Pacific region. It's been discussed by photography bloggers like Thom Hogan, but I've not seen any personal views from those who reside in the US and Europe to try and understand what it is that makes large DSLRs so popular and mirrorless systems as desirable as herpes. It may be hard to gain an understanding from people on a mirrorless forum, but you must have connections with friends etc who have views on mirrorless systems and why they spurn them. Does anyone have first hand or anecdotal feedback on what makes mirrorless systems such poor cousins to DSLRs, despite their many advantages and very few disadvantages, especially in the US? Fuji made some interesting comments about the status quo: http://www.dpreview.com/articles/5988185050/fujifilm-interview-the-only-way-is-to-keep-innovating. Also some interesting comments about the importance of high end products, as I alluded to in the other thread.
