The market for "serious" cameras is quite traditional. The market leaders are the ones that produce the least innovation.

Name recognition is everything.

Change purely for the sake of it is time wasted IMO

People are forgetting that the "classic" SLR design evolved in decades. All the things we're talking for granted - the pentaprism, which allows for a correctly-oriented image, the instant return mirror, the metering system - everything was time-tested.

And of course not every new thing was successful. Power zoom. Strange interface choices like manual focus via buttons. The pellicle camera.
Never "fix" a working system - unless you have a very good reason.
