Careful what you wish for

You may get lower prices but it will come with a cost. Put a bunch of additional companies out there to get competition and you will decrease market share for each company combined with a shrinking profit margin as each company cuts quality, testing, etc in order to turn a profit. What happens next is you get buyouts so a company can increase sales in order to increase profits in the face of shrinking margins.

Hmmmm.... Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Pentax, Minolta, Sony, Contax, Fuji, Sigma, Kodak... We've already shrunk from all these. Some of the others are in trouble. I think these companies are all aware of what the profit potential is in the camera market, including the high end pro market.
