Mirrorless Threat To Canon And Nikon

Sony NEX-5NKBloomberg financial news is warning that Canon and Nikon might be missing out on the mirrorless camera war if they don't come up with their versions.

Sony, Panasonic, Olympus and Samsung are shifting away from the standard; this allows them to cut down cost and size and deliver smaller and lighter cameras in the market, something that Japanese consumers seem to enjoy. If the west follows the same path as East, then there will be problems for Canon and Nikon.

Canon and Nikon, which began making SLRs in the late 1950s, are starting to lose their edge in Japan, home to the world’s five largest makers of SLRs. Mirrorless cameras accounted for 40.5 percent of SLR sales in the country in July, surging from 5 percent in early 2009, according to BCN.

I believe that professionals who look at quality will still vouch for the mirror options rather than a new technology even though making waves is yet to match up to the standards that Nikon and Canon have. It would become more exclusive rather than fade away unless for survival both of them introduce to mirror less models.
