14% of the total market (zero market share growth in 10 years) isn't "major player" status to me. Sony's camera division is gonna be in deep trouble soon. Deeper than usual. Waiting for the next couple of CIPA reports. Then what will you Sony types do? Hopefully Sony will release a lens longer than 400mm one day.FYI, I now have a Canon 1DX mkII, 5DmkIV, 6DmkII, Eos R, 5DmkIII and a 77D. So its really kind of funny that you think I am a Sony Type.
I am just a realist and am aware of other brands and how they are doing. 5 yrs ago, Sony was a nothing in the full frame arena. Now they are a major player and have some damn good equipment. I may be a Canon guy but I know a good number who have left. I am optimistic about Canon though and feel their two initial bodies in the full frame mirrorless market are fairly strong entries particularly the RP at that price point.
