    For me... the DSLR market boils down to Canon and Nikon. I (along with FBJ, and a couple others...) shoot Nikon...

    Rinkrat, Valleyfan, and others shoot Canon.

    The other brands, while getting better, don't really hold a candle to these two.

    Depending on what you want, Samy's camera usually has pretty good kits for sale. Entry level, etc.

    With all due respect, that's nonsense. Canon and Nikon do dominate the market, but not because their products are head and shoulders above others'.

    Not total nonsense. Canon and Nikon's pro-level gear (bodies and lenses) is head-and-shoulders above the others. That's not to say that others don't make good consumer-level or even prosumer-level stuff.
    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

    The guy's asking about entry-level stuff, what does pro equipment have to do with his question? That said, nobody else has pro level bodies. Selection of glass at the top level I will agree Canon and Nikon have an advantage in, but no in quality. I know Sony's top-end glass is every bit as good as Canikon, and you can't get Zeiss AF lenses in any other mount. I don't know, but I would guess Pentax's glass is also no worse.

    I stand corrected then. They dominate the market, but it isn't because their products are better than everyone else... its because they're the most used by everyone.

    (Personally speaking, I believe their products are better than everyone else, because they have been premiere makers of imaging equipment for God knows how long)

    Back in the day with 35mm, I think the market was much more competitive. I shot with an Olympus OM-2 for the longest time... so you could make more of an argument for the Olympuses, the Pentax, the Minoltas, etc....

    However, since the transition into the digital age, I believe that Canon and Nikon have emerged as a leaders. Call it better advertisement, or call it what you want, the fact remains that they are the leaders of the digital imaging industry.

    Not half-assed bad for a cell-phone camera. HTC Incredible's 8mp is pretty f'in sweet!
