Sony are investing for the future which impress so much that Eric Fossum has comment their foreward spirit in competition with other Omnivision, Aptina etc. We are here discussing if Canon are using 180nm tech, Sony are at 45nm.
Tell me, what signs are there that Canon has invested big money in new technology to meet the competition?
You should be more worried about Canon that have locked them selfs in to a corner like Apple did before they went over to Intel.
Don't get upset ankorwatt. We all know Sony has invested and make good sensors.
But here you are starting off on your anti canon hobby horse. Again. You seem incapable of taking a balanced view. The "proof" of canons investment you ask for is easy for anyone to see. Many people, myself included, think the 1dx is about the best camera out there. Not only have they clearly made investments they have made wise investments as they make money and that is what a business is trying to do.
As ever you are very critical of canon, who incidentally also make very good sensors. You seem hung up on looking for anything that in your opinion shows canon in a bad light. But you should realise that even if canons sensors are not quite as good as Sony's, and that's not definitely right. Canon also make very good cameras and lenses and money.
Overall you should accept that canon has made wise investments and run a successful business. The results speak for themselves, my 1dx is quite capable of producing great images. I'm sure you would not be able to tell the difference if I was using nikon or Sony or pentax.
Why don't you stop being so bitter and negative?
