This could be said for the entire photography industry and have you looked at Sony's profits (or lack of profits) lately?

Digital imaging is a small part of Sony's portfolio and one that Sony has started to push more as it sees growth opportunities there. But, Sony could suffer a setback if photography as a whole slows down, considering that Sony has a 50% marketshare on digital sensors... from iphone to A7r.

Sony's own photography history had been only Cybershots until 2006 and then Alpha ILCs since. The E-mount has been in the market for barely over three years now. If anything, I too see plenty of potential market for Sony to call its own in the near future. Its just getting started.
