No weirder than Fujifilm at one time being an esteemed and major breeder of KOI (yes, those beautiful decorative carp)... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koi

A family member used to work for Fujifilm America as a color scientist, and told me about the huge koi ponds at the Japan headquarters, originally started as a public relations effort in order to reassure the locals that the film chemistry plant wouldn't be contaminating the environment (look, our fish live in the effluent...). Given that koi are essentially big catfish, bottom feeders, this may not have been a high demand on the fish. However, apparently the sales of excess koi did become a (relatively small) line item in the Fujifilm tax returns. Some individual mature fish were line item assets, being worth (equivalent) $10,000.00 to $60,000.00 - the fish equivalents of Secretariat.

This website only publishes depressing news, lettuce crops and a decade old technology on a plastic entry level body.

Meanwhile the Nikon D850 goes on unmatched and Sony releases a body under 2000usd that steamrolls over any Canon FF body under 4000usd.

Lettuce is a crop.... not a Full Frame....

Canon has never put a red ring on a crop......

 ;D  Excellent, Don.

So good.

Lettuce innovate, Canon!

I'm going to look into a salad bowl with a red ring.
Canon is smart to diversify.  Right now, I need a robotic snowblower.

A lot of people would say "I am fed up with Canon crops, I would not even taste their recent crops. Canon is doomed because it still uses mirrors to collect light for crops. I better go Sony lettuce, because it is lighter on me, even though I never tasted a Sony lettuce. But their grass is greener in my mind.".

Canon as a company is pretty diverse and does a lot of neat things.

In my humble opinion, it's always good to see what they are doing in other fields, or how camera technology evolves into other things, such as this; something that just may in the future help the world feed it's population. 

Since I'm helping Craig while he's on vacation, bear with me a bit.  I find it cool.  Just not as cool as cucumbers.

What they are doing 'in other fields'? - tomatoes probably.

I just hope the new 5DSR has a tilty-flippy screen.

Lettuce wait and see.
