Re: Time is running out for The big two

Since Canon and Nikon actually make money out of selling cameras, while pretty much everyone else is losing money, it's hard to criticise their strategy.

Plus they are also the only people with reasonably complete lens ranges, e.g. Canon has Eight telephoto lenses of 300mm or more (not including the telephoto zooms, just primes) and Four Tilt-Shift lenses currently available. I'd love a good stabilised auto-focusing super-telephoto for my GH3, but will have to wait a while I think.
