In short, Nikon and Canon dominate because they have the best cameras and lens systems.

My problem is that the cameras have remained relatively unchanged, with the last major change going from 35mm to digital. Sure you can talk about canons new dual pixel AF, but really, that's a small new feature after many years of waiting for something new.

I am genuinely puzzled by why you value newness.  Because we photograph the world, and the world has not changed.  The sky and the grass are the same colour, dogs run the same speed, football fields are the same size, and we have been taking perfectly good photographs of all those things for years: why would cameras change?
