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.

What I have trouble understanding is why everyone is so hung up on "innovation" for what seems to be nothing more than "the sake of innovation". It would appear that the market doesn't assign the same value to these particular "innovations" that you do. Maybe you should step back and take a look at what is really innovative about Canon and Nikon -- hint: it ain't the technology, never has been.  Think marketing, customer support, acceptance in the marketplace, bredth of accessories, etc. etc. etc.
