I am not a fan of Monopolys, But Nikon and Canon still have 85% of the DSLR market. Nikon and Canon scaled down shipment expectations, but so did everyone. The Monopoly is alive and well.

I think you need to look up the definition of a "monopoly". Perhaps "mono" would give you a clue. At best this is an oligopoly. Either way, I would agree that dSLRs is not a normally competitive market with numerous healthy players. The tech change to mirrorless may serve to break up this oligopoly.

From the recent sales reports, it doesn't seem strict ML systems are doing very well, especially in the US. I think N/C will continue to dominate, and that will eventually mena ML systems as well. It's the weight of brand recognition plus large systems plus large userbase. No one has been able to break into that, actually digital saw the demise or reduction in participation of many competitors.
