The CIPA numbers for January are horrible: DSLR down 21.8%, mirrorless down 14.8%

CIPA (Camera & Imaging Products Association in Japan) published their January report and the numbers do not look good – the total number of shipped digital cameras is lower compared to the same month in previous years (orange: 2019, black: 2018, blue: 2017, click for larger view).

DSLR shipments are down 21.8%, mirrorless is down 14.8%, compacts are down 31.6%, lenses for smaller than 35mm cameras down 26.6%, lenses for 35mm cameras down 4.9%. Hard to believe that mirrorless is down double digits with all the new models that have been released.

Here are the other two graphs:
