I think many here are in denial. Sony is very competitive with their mirror less cameras. Fast, silent and light.
The Canon R is currently not an alternative for the pro line of EF, they need the lens line up first. Canon now (inadvertently?) announced they will
Your implication is that Sony is the choice for pros. The Super Bowl is coming up – count the Sony stills cameras you see on the sidelines and on the field after the game, compared to Canon or Nikon. Let us know if Sony is the most-used brand.

No, that won't be the case. Canon is way ahead of anyone else. But when technology changes, the leaders often take the longest to change to the new paradigm, sometimes too long (e.g. Kodak).
All I am saying is that Canon seems to realize the times are changing, and they need to embrace mirror less fully. If not, that image you are painting may change rapidly.

So in the DSLR, just use half a mirror? I don't follow. As it is, they make DSLRs for people who want them, and mirrorless for those who want them, and Powershots for those who want them.

But if you do that, and see that 90 percent of the cameras are Canon, isn’t that proof that Canon is doomed?

After all, it's not 99%...and if it were 99% it wouldn't be a hundred percent, therefore...Canon. Is. Doomed.
