I shoot Sony, the only camera maker with SLT and one of the few with EVF. Then there is Pentax, one of the few SLR's with in body stabilization. On the smaller side you have Fuji, probably the best mirror less camera out there. Olympus and Panasonic are pushing the boundaries of what can be done with a small sensor.

Canon and Nikon are just boring compared to Sony, Olympus, Pentax, Panasonic, and Fuji. I don't understand why Canon and Nikon dominate with their lack of innovation.

They have the advantage of decades of brand awareness etc.

Olympus, Pentax, Canon, Nikon were pretty much the main SLR makers when I began photography in the very early 1980's. Pros not shooting 35mm were shooting MF 'blads, Mamiyas, Pentax etc.

Pentax and Olympus buggered it up somewhere along the line but are slowly rehabilitating their brands (Olympus more so than Pentax I would say) but Canikon just never left the public consciousness.

Most buyers are sheep - they buy what they are told to, either by adverts, salesmen or strangers on the net. Canikon have big budgets to ensure plenty of the sheep eat their grass!
