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.
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?
Relax dude! I think his post was about Canon's positioning with respect to primes for APS-C format cameras. Hardly fanboism ... I've seen worse.
You may need to see the trolling that goes on at Nikon forums ... phew

I come here to learn something new, not to learn how bad my gear is - I know that already ;-)!
