The “smartphonization” of digital cameras (the addition of smartphone-like features, Wifi, touchscreens, NFC, companion apps, syncing, etc) has the added benefits to manufacturers of encouraging photographers to follow the upgrade cycles, similar to the smartphone upgrade cycles.

The mirrorless systems sort of countered the advantage of Canon and Nikon DSLR systems having more 3rd-party lens options than the DSLR systems of the other manufacturers. But DSLR-wise, Canon and Nikon systems still have an advantage over the other remaining DSLR systems.
For example, then new Tamron 24-70mm f2.8 Di VC USD G2 is only available in Nikon and Canon, and as of the time of writing, the Canon EF version is in-stock and ready to ship for $1199 at B&H Photo.
The 3rd-party lens manufacturers also serve to keep OG Canon and Nikon lens prices in check. Imagine how much the f2.8 PRO zooms would cost if Canikon knew that you couldn’t get Tamrons and Tokinas and Shigumas instead…
PS: “Shiguma” was the computer-translated name of Sigma from back in the day of earlier versions of computer-translation software technology 🙂
