I agree, Canon sensors are to late
Gee, I guess it's a good thing that Canon sells cameras, not just sensors....and they continue to sell more of them than their competition.
you can think what you want, the rest is easy to catch up, speed, AF ergonomic etc but not the sensor, and there are the Canon Inc hopeless bypassed by Sony, Aptina, Panasonic, Toshiba, Omnivision, Renesas, and many more today
And , bigger companies has fallen than Canon when they are not up to date.
Ahh, yes...the rest is so easy to catch up, and lenses, flashes, etc., too. That must be why Nikon, Sony, et al., are selling so many more dSLRs than Canon. Oh, wait...they're not. The thing is, if it was 'so easy' than Canon would have been losing market share ever since their sensors 'fell behind'. But they've been gaining.
Also, it's easy to fall into the trap of thinking that the opposite of better is bad. The opposite of better is worse, and in the case of Canon's 'not better' sensors, worse is still pretty damn good.
Canon have lived on a long time on their name and early cmos sensor tech since 2004, sorry but this tech is old 2013 which can been seen if you compare to Nikon, Pentax, Sony = DXO scores etc why are no Canon in the DXO list over best sensors at all ?
Do you have any nuanced view at all or whats going on ?
Who needs a nuanced view? Every year for which there are sales data and during which Nikon sensors beat Canon sensors on DxOMark, Canon sold more dSLRs. Nuances aren't helping your case.
