Any company that tries to be 'all things' to 'all people' would soon be 'all broke' and 'all gone'.
From my viewpoint with a background in marketing, Canon is undoubtedly far better equipped to research and determine what the market wants than any individual posting on this forum. They have global assets and access to market trends throughout the world. Do any of us? I hardly think so.
In recent years I have purchased Nikon and Fuji, in addition to my Canon gear thinking some of their products might serve me better. I did not find that to be the case. I take approximately 35,000 - 40,000 images per year in some very demanding environments. My Canon gear delivers everything that I need. Are they perfect. Hell no. But then neither am I and neither is anyone else out there. On balance, I find them to be the best for my needs.
I didn't buy into a Canon camera or Canon lens. I bought into the Canon system and the Canon product development philosophy. I'm sure many photographers also bought into the same with Nikon.
All that to say that in my opinion either of those companies can satisfy the needs of 99% of the photographers that walk this earth.
Remember that often times a company that appears to be on the 'leading' edge, is actually on the 'bleeding' edge.
Just one man's opinion.
