But these EUV scanners can't even do 15 nm!

I just don't see it happening anytime soon for EUV litho. There are so many issues that still need to be addressed. I see only more delays ahead. A 2015 insertion point for "real manufacturing" seems optimistic to me.

I just wonder how the asmc sales are so positive even while there is a dip in the sales of semiconductor in general.

But if it does not happen soon, it will never happen for volume production. The window is closing quickly.

It missed 22 nm logic/foundry, that's already too late.

Mainstream lithography was never determined by resolution or even cost, but by throughput. So e-beam got replaced by optical, even as optical was much more complex.

ASML immersion backlog is currently about 50% of the installed base, the industry bet is on immersion extension by multiple patterning, starting 2012-3.
