My belief is that if you don't innovate...you die. So as far as I'm concerned Nikon and Canon are "dead men walking".

At best just old lumbering camera producers, waiting for other companies to innovate, and slowly adapting what works.

Most photographers stick with Nikon and Canon, because they are safe bets.

Sony, Panasonic, Olympus, and others are taking advantage of what digital camera design can be.

Canon and Nikon still make cameras designed with one foot still in the film era.

I was at first delighted to see Nikon put out something like the Df, until I realized it was Just an older camera with a retro shell. A fixed LCD, flipping mirror, etc.

Just a lame attempt to follow fashion.

I for one will be getting one of the Sony A7's. The combination of focus peaking, and the ability to fit on my old Olympus Zuiko OM lenses, (or ANY lens) has me really excited.

What has Canon and Nikon done to generate such excitement?
