Canon arranges a survey annually to find out what customers want. And this time they included 3 Questions about Mirrorless cameras. Seems like they want to know if Mirrorless Cameras are worth it to capture their market share in the Market. Canon also announced that they will be surprising it's fans on the 3rd of Novemeber (Maybe they want to announce a mirrorless camera), but we'll just have to wait to find out.

On the other hand Nikon is also planning on releasing some cannon cameras. Anyone interested?.

1) Since when does sending out a survey mean "threatened"?
2) Canon has a right to make mirrorless cameras if they want to.

Using your debate, you could also say that Sony fealt threatened by Micro Four Thirds....:)

Unless Canon or Nikon make a NEX-killer ILC camera with full frame image sensor and pro-grade build and features for less than the price of a 5D then I really don't care what Nikon or Canon do in the mirrorless space. They've taken too long to get in the market as far as I am concerned. For me it is NEX or m4/3 if you want an ILC camera.

Got to disagree with you a bit here.
If Canon & Nikon introduced a mirrorless format by Christmas with a nice assortment of lenses, then that assortment of lenses could very well put them ahead of Sony NEX.

1) Almost every brand feels threatened with the other (especially if you're going to loose your market share). Just like how a usual human being would feel insecure if someone else is with his/her partner allot.
2) Canon may do whatever they want to, didn't say they shouldn't, by all means, the consumers will be benefiting with better products due to competition. This is just news/rumors so don't take it too personally. I'm a fan of Canon DSLR's & Compact Point&Shoots and sony Point and shoots (High Optical Zoom Cameras)

I think the only difference is that with M43 and Sony now well established in this market Canon and Nikon will not be able to dominate the way they dominate the DSLR market.

Agreed. :)

I'm not a Canon owner nor user so it's not personal with me...Just logical....
