I suspect that Canon feels that their strategy is more successful. At a time where camera sales are hard hit, Canon is doing relatively well. Companies tend to stick with what works for them.
it works for canon because a huge percentage of fanboys are stupid.
don´t know how to call it other then stupid, sorry.
You really should look in the mirror, better yet, read your posts.
instead of complaining about overpriced gear they even DEFEND canon.
even gear that is more expensive and has lower specs then the competition gets praise from them.
and then you read comments like "R&D is expensive" or "be thankfull that canon makes a profit! so canon can invest in R&D".
well i don´t see much improvement in sensor performance so why should i care about R&D and how much money canon makes?
i can see what sonys R&D sensor department is doing... but canons?
Best post here in a while. You say what i feel.
Everybody here is always like "they make the most money so there is nothing bad with their products"... All those blinded fanboys that dont even see what Canon is doing since the last year.
