Heard unfortunate news that a good friend and very capable marketing rep for Canon USA was recently laid off. Did Canon do a larger round of layoffs, and if so, why? Or was this just a "spot" reduction of people.
Between this and the lack of DSLR product coming out of Canon right now, I'm feeling less than enthused about this company's direction.
The good news is that despite sales being down for all camera companies, there are no big layoffs being announced. To me, that suggest Canon is protecting most of their people in anticipation of market improvements.
What do you mean by "lack of DSLR product coming out of Canon"? I'm not aware of product shortages.
