Just few days ago we have published a report that Canon “Canon Profit Down – Lowered its annual sales forecast ” and similarly according to a article published at Nikon cuts yearly forecasts after getting reports of lower sales percentage and income in the first quarter of the year.

The big problem – Better & affordable alternatives available , Canikon already lost the compact camera market share after the introduction of high quality camera smartphones, now they are losing the DSLR market share too…

After the announcement of bunch of A7 series and other mirrorless camera photographers got a lot of option against DSLR, yes they lack of high quality lenses like Canon or Nikon…

Affordable & High Quality Alternatives of Cannikon

    Is this some sort of Sony add or what? Judging by Sony’s appalling financial results over the last few years, they have lost much more business overall then canon and Nikon combined! Welcome to the real world 🙂

    Sony products are tempting toys, but lasting quality sucks. My lifetime experience with even the most expensive products was always disappointing. When guarantee period passes, always something breaks down. At the beginning is joy of using it followed by big disappointment. Never buy Sony again. Whatever it is. Short time lived joy-toys.
