It is NOT our business! In fact Canon is a nice business (no pun intended!). What we can do is buy or not buy their products...
Canon cares not only about market share, but most likely more about revenue. And here they are falling into the "more of the same" trap: If something doesn't work/sell as expected, re-release the stuff (5d2->6d), start the big marketing machine and raise the price. Market share in a tiny sector of the Canon enterprise might get smaller, i.e. the enthusiast's market, but revenue stays the same and no one gets fired. Unless they run out of breath.
Btw to multiple posters: It has been discussed that it's absolutely legit to care if one has invested not in Canon shares, but in Canon products. If some people feel the discussion should end with the decision to buy a product or not, a rumors site maybe isn't for you.
