They also strongly implied that they don't care about low ISO DR and will wait until after sales tank, if ever, to bother. I think they just don't like the cost of a new fab and are doing everything to avoid it, not caring what anyone in forums says or how DxO scores look and gambling that only a few will leave and sales will keep going on as they have been for years to come even if they don't improve low ISO DR (and in other places, the word about 4k for 5D4 sounds pretty negatory as well) Oh well.
I'm hoping that the "our sensors are the best" is just a case of chest beating where they don't want to be seen by outsiders to admitting that they equipment is second best. Inside, I'm pretty sure that the engineers would know the real deal but whether management listens to them or prioritises that kind of work is another thing.
This. Let's face it; no one from PR is going to come out and say "yeah, you are right, our sensors are getting trumped by the competition." They are paid to do the opposite. I'm sure Canon is aware of the weaknesses of their sensors relative to Sony's. Whether or not they do something about it is another matter entirely, but I wouldn't take this interview as indication of much of anything at this point.
