I'm not disagreeing with you but don't you think that what you shoot is fairly specialised.

Most consumers with an interest in photography will be going for smaller equipment with a corresponding smaller sensor as the quality is 'good enough'.

However I still think Canon and Nikon will be the big boys operating in that sphere.

And I think Nikon was actually ahead of their time with their mirrorless system (though poorly implemented).

If M43 sensors are good enough for most people now, 1 inch and Nikon 1 sensors will be good enough in a few years time.

This is where we are all different. I really only visit nature forums and hang out in the bird / avian forums mostly. International forums, not just a one brand forum.

Here's where it all changes, its called spot the mirrorless camera............

Now that's just 4 and they have been going for many years with a ton of members, not just a few. Not to mention the rest of the forums on those, wildlife, macro, etc. I doubt any of those people will ever go for a smaller format or want smaller lenses.

There are no lenses to compete with what they use and I doubt there ever will be. Then there is that sensor size difference.

All the best and there's always the sports forums
