Someone's gonna get hurt in this fight
Oct 23, 2007

This article ran in the 10/17 issue of the Boston Globe.

http://www.boston.com/business/technology/articles/2007/10/17/olympus_aims_for_20_pct_digital_slr_camera_share/

Olympus states that they're aiming for 20% or MORE of the worldwide DSLR market. Canon has abour 47%, and Nikon has 33% of the pie. Sony, which has previously stated that they want to capture about 30%, held 6.2% in 2006, and Olympus wasn't far behind with 5.9%. No figure was given for Pentax, but I'm sure they'll want a piece of the pie. And don't forget Sigma, Panasonic, Leica, and whomever else is out there.

Neither Canon, nor Nikon will give up any of their share without a fight, so not everyone is going to get what they want, someone or two or three, will get a bloody nose in the coming future.

It will be interesting to see how things work out. However, I'm sure that to capture a bigger share of the pie, someone will drop prices in an attempt to get things going.
