I'm not a chairman of the board of a major Japanese corporation, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night. That qualifies me as much as anyone else here to comment on this stuff.+1e6
Unless you are a significant stock-holder (like a pension / superannuation fund), or a senior executive of Canon, it would be hard to provide a qualified opinion of what the qualities of individuals in leadership roles of Canon should be.
I have posted before, that if you are unhappy with Canon's offerings, you should not whinge about them, rather, do not buy them.
Vote with you wallet! It's by far the most effective management and strategy tool in the market.
Just what I'm doing, Canon don't have an up to date semi-pro 1.6 crop camera so I'll stick with what I have.
Canon needs a 7d MK II, not every one wants a full frame jobbie.
