Canon, the Toyota of the Camera Industry?

RE: Canon, the Toyota of the Camera Industry?
Good points Matthew. I think a lot of people out there are waiting to see what Canon does in the mirrorless space and a lot of people, including the reviewer, have been disappointed. Almost all manufacturers have made their plays, for better or worse, but Canon have seemingly put the G1X out as a stopgap measure in lieu of a true mirrorless solution.

On another related point, I thought it was interesting that in term of overall camera sales, the manufacturers are ranked as follows:
#1 Canon
#2 Sony
#3 Nikon
I was surprised to see Sony up there, especially when Canon and Nikon are always dominating the top end of the market, but I suppose this takes in to account all camera sales including compacts.
