The established players (Nikon/Canon) often have a hard time moving to the new technology. Canon hasn't done anything yet. Nikon has a compact mirrorless system. I think it's only a matter of time before Canon and Nikon start making mirrorless bodies for their APS-C systems.

Nikon and Canon do not have a hard time responding to new technology; they are too busy selling DSLR wich continue to increase in sales volumes. The mirrorless eating into DSLR share is a statistical artifact from the fact that you include a new category into an existing one.

Nikon and Canon will probably take their share into the mirrorless market in due course as it is a new camera segment to gain customers in.

Mirorrless is not an example of disruptive technology (it is hardly a technology per se; it is about removing a feature from a product), but an example of an increasingly fragmented camera market.

DSLR's won't go away anytime soon; particularly as Nikon and Canon are setting new sales records for every DSLR model they release somthing that is currently happening....
