Hastalosmegapixeles (Click here) checked the full World Press Photo winner list and noticed that about 90% of the pictures have been taken with DSLR cameras. Only 3% with Mirrorless, and 7% with rangefinder or film cameras.

There is still a long way to go for Mirrorless System Cameras before they become as popular as DSLR. But the first goal has been achieved already: On a pure tech level cameras like the Fuji X-T1 and Olympus E-M1 are on par with the best APS-C DSLR cameras.

Fuji managers says: Focus on APS-C now, but in future we could go Full Frame.

Fuji manager Toshihisa Iida has been interviewed by the Dpreview team. And these are the interesting things he mentioned:

– X-T1 preorders are twice as high as expected

– Focus is on high end market. Low end market is only important in Asia.

– Mirrorless camera share (all manufacturers) is 40% in Japan, 25% in Asia and 10% in US and Europe

– X-E2 firmware upgrade will improve the refresh rate of the EVF

– At the moment we focus on APS-C but we don’t rule out the possibility to use larger sensor in future.
