  1. According to this article, Bloomberg who reported that Nikon and Canon control about 80% of the DSLR market are both reporting that Pro DSLR cameras will account for the majority of their income this year. This can only mean good news for increased development of pro equipment. Bad news if you are trying to keep ahead of the curve buying new equipment.

    Here is the whole article.

    Quote from the article:

    Canon expects shipments of single-lens reflex models to rise 38 percent this year to 1.8 million units, outpacing the 20 percent growth expected for all its digital cameras. Nikon expects a 50 percent increase in shipments of the models to 1.6 million units this fiscal year, compared with 15 percent growth of its overall digital camera shipments.
