Typical sensationalism. How else are they going to get people to read their articles and therefore garner advertising space?

People want and need DSLR's, therefore there is a market and therefore Nikon and Canon will survive.

Good thing you're not the CEO of Nikon or Canon   It's that type of hubris and short-term thinking that destroys companies.

e.g.

"People want and need film and film cameras therefore there is a market and therefore Kodak will survive." (nope, failed to change with the times, outmoded by digital cameras)

"People want and need a physical keyboard on their phone therefore there is a market and therefore Blackberry will survive." (nope, outmoded by touchscreens)

"People want and need video rental stores therefore there is a market and therefore Blockbuster will survive." (nope, outmoded by Netflix, Hulu, Redbox, etc.)

"People want and need a piano in the home therefore there is a market and therefore Aeolian-American Piano Company will survive." (nope, what was once the world's largest piano company was outmoded by the radio and later television)

"People want and need horsedrawn carriages therefore there is a market and therefore Buggy Whip Mfg. Co. will survive." (nope, outmoded by the automobile)

etc. etc. etc.
