You're right thank god there is competition. Smart consumers should reward the best (to the consumer) company. Blind loyalty to one particular company is just stupid.

A lot has changed already due to the mirrorless market, where Canon and Nikon have failed to take it seriously and Olympus, Panasonic, Fuji, Sony, etc., have all great products that cater to different consumer needs.

I'm really curious about the DSLR market on the long term. Canon and Nikon are still on top there, but with the increase in lens prices many enthusiasts with deep pockets will probably reconsider. Maybe it will open up that market to Sony, Pentax and Olympus. With Sony and Olympus now joining forces, they might just have what is needed to compete with Canon and Nikon.

Mirrorless is the way of the future for high end photography except for a few pros with real special needs. Smart phone camera will take over the low to mid-level market. This may not happen right away but it will happen in 5~10 years if not sooner. In the mean time Canon and Nikon will try to sell as many dslr as possible, just like HP and Dell will try to sell as many laptops as possible, when this is the only thing they are good at. This is another reason a smart consumer should look at the big picture instead of stick with only one brand he/she is familiar with.
