That is because canon and nikon are really the leaders in the dslr market. They are the brands with the huge lens selection. And pretty much the only games in town when you consider pro level gear. With the exception of Oly which has some pro gear also. Sony is more consumer electronic. So you will most likely find them at like a best buy or something.

Just to clear up the "refurb" issue. Sony on sells refurbished cameras on their own website in a clearly marked Outlet Center.

I would have checked at the store of course. But we go there quite often (they have good deals on playstation games) and I don't remember having seen refurbished items.

Actually, come to think of it, my H5 is a refurbished model. But we purchased it when my husband worked for Sony.

There is nothing wrong with refrebs. I get some of my canon lens that are canon factory refreb. But I get a 1 year warranty from adorama on canon factory referb. All other brand only a 90 day warranty.
