I read the Canon article in the Nikkei. The current market for interchangeable lens cameras is about 10 million /year. Canon sees it dropping, but stabilizing, at about 5-6 million/year. In the future, Canon will be concentrate more on industrial, surveillance and medical imaging and less on consumer-grade cameras.
