I post too Much on Here!!

Sometimes you would be better served by considering your words more carefully before posting instead of just knee-jerk defensiveness.Sometimes you would be better served by actually reading what people write instead of just knee jerk attacks. Certainly you can’t really believe that Canon thinks the dying low end market is the future.
Everthing Canon has done in the past several years indicates they see the enthusiast market as the future (At least until that market ages out in five to 10 years)
I read what you wrote carefully, as I try to do with everything I read. Your original post was very much in the present tense. You stated, “With the low end market now replaced by smart phones…,” and that the wealthy enthusiast market segment is “Where the money is these days,” and, “It’s the bread and butter today.” The facts show those claims to be bogus.
So now you’re trying to reframe your post in the future tense, “…see the enthusiast market as the future.” A standard move-the-goalposts ploy that’s typically used by those who are too weak or insecure to simply admit they are wrong. Sad, but regrettably common.
Obviously Canon is considering the future. But @LogicExtremist stated the bulk of Canon’s ILC sales come from high volume, lower margin entry level gear. The facts support that assertion. You disagreed with that assertion, and you were wrong.
