Re: Think mounts not manufacturers

A thoughtful analysis, but you’ve got to think in terms of mount based systems, not just manufacturers. For example, Leica share their mount with Panasonic and Sigma. As long as one of that consortium exist, each can sell cameras and lenses within that ecosystem. In my view, you won’t see any one of the consortium fail without all of them failing. Cameras like the Leica SL2 have a lot of Panasonic’s electronics expertise inside.

On the other hand, in my view Canon is safe, but M mount is not. Their two mount based systems are incompatible, so one can go without the other being affected.
