For any doubters on whether Canikon are losing share, you'll find similar discussions on the Nikon forums (about what Nikon will do) and that there are many, many who take on a Sony A7/A7r as a second body and soon make it their primary body. And many of them are using their Canikon lenses on their A7/A7r bodies with adapters so the lack of FE lenses is not as a big deal as it seems.

Canon and Nikon share loss is not as noticeable because a large portion of their sales are through big box retailers like Target and Costco in the US. While good to have share in mass market segments, enthusiast on up segments are where the better margins are.

Can't tell you how many people I know that have bought a quality mirror-less as a "back-up" or travel cam only to discover that it was the only cam they were interested in shooting.

Particularly true of the Alphas as they can shoot any DSLR lens and some RF lenses.

Little by little serious enthusiasts will introduce these cameras to the larger population.

When that happens Canikon better be ready for new demands.
