I dont disagree with that, but the article the OP refered to predicted that Canon and Nikon and DSLRs in general will be gone in ten years time, which is a little more drastic.

Actually, no.

The article said that EITHER canon or nikon would not exist in 10 years. EITHER not AND.

Here's the paragraph:

Each story is different in details, but the overall trajectory is the same. Ten years from now, it’s very likely that either Canon or Nikon won’t exist as a camera manufacturer.

And he's betting that Canon will survive, for the obvious reason, that it is more diversified.

The article does not predict the demise of the DSLR, more the rise and eventual domination of the mirrorless. I tend to agree.

DSLRs will probably still get manufactured and sold to niche markets.
Sort of like pure manual focus cameras are getting built today - think Leica.

Crocodile skin and platinum 5D MkIX any one? They come in a lovely hand rubbed black walnut presentation case, lined with baby blue whale foreskin... individually serial numbered -both of them! Only $100K.
