Nikon and Canon have "innovated" the best cameras (SLRs) to the highest state of performance, and have extensive systems of optics to go with them, along with professional service to back them all up. When those other camera makers can match that with their systems, then they'll have something to crow about. I wouldn't hold my breath.

In short, Nikon and Canon dominate because they have the best cameras and lens systems. Funny how that works.

My problem is that the cameras have remained relatively unchanged, with the last major change going from 35mm to digital. Sure you can talk about canons new dual pixel AF, but really, that's a small new feature after many years of waiting for something new.
