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.

Nikon has some of the longest lens repair return times as documented by's Roger Cicala, and Canon has sensor tech that is not competitive in terms of noise, dynamic range or colour depth. Difference in DR is now two stops, and widening.

You cite "professional service" and "best cameras" - I don't see that either is true.

The unforgiving deserve no apology.
