Onlooker...You still haven't answered my question...what has Canon and Nikon done lately?

Produced cameras, DSLRs specifically, that purchasers, both pro and hobbyist, are willing to actually purchase.  Meanwhile Sony desperately tries to find a viable market niche using their "throw stuff against the wall and see what sticks" marketing strategy.  The feature differences that would seem gigantic based on the posts by hobbyists in these gear forums mean little to those who actually buy, rather than endlessly discuss, cameras in quantities large enough to keep the manufacturers solvent.

Will Sony be one of the FF players in five years?  They are under intense pressure from Wall Street to focus on the parts of their company that make money and divest themselves of their money losing electronics business which includes the camera making subdivision.  A Sony that doesn't make TVs, cameras, and electronic gadgets is a real possibility in the near future.
