The market data represent millions of camera sales per year, Canon surveys thousands of users periodically. Both datasets are global. Unless you have comparable coverage of the market both numerically and geographically, your ‘info and sources’ are essentially irrelevant.If you depend on hard data, you should not try to guess, how many ppl I talk to and what kind of info and sources I have access to.
You seem unclear on the definition of a paradigm shift. ILC with mirror to ILC without mirror isn’t one. Not only were DSLR sales not affected, MILC sales have been essentially flat for as long as CIPA has tracked them as a category. But of course, you can certainly consider MILCs a paradigm shift if it helps you sleep at night. Lots of people convince themselves that lies are truth to make themselves feel better.Of course I am talking about paradigm shifts. I am myself considering MILCs being a paradigm shift, even if DSLR sales were not affected ...
You keep harping on innovation. Objectively, Canon has a demonstrable attitude toward innovation. Canon was third for the number of US patents awarded in last year (top company in Japan), and has been in the top five companies worldwide for granted patents for 33 years running. But as long as you keep listing Canon’s innovations on that 2cm-wide scratchpad that supports your incredibly narrow thinking, you’ll go on believing they don’t innovate. Lots of people convince themselves that lies are truth to make themselves feel better.The difference is, that you think, that the hard sales figures are the only thing, which matter in the long run, why I think, that it is an attitude towards an innovation, which might influence your future position.
