Administrators Andrew Reid Posted September 8, 2018 Administrators Share Posted September 8, 2018 Here is what I just don't get about Canon. The Sony FS5, FS7 and high-end cinema cameras are popular. There is absolutely zero evidence the mirrorless line is cannibalising them rather than complimenting them as second cameras. If there was any evidence of market research to suggest so, Sony would have changed their strategy a long time ago. Most people now think Canon is protecting the Cinema EOS line, including Steve Huff, in his excellent article here that I almost entirely agree with: http://www.stevehuffphoto.com/2018/09/05/canon-crushed-many-dreams-today-with-the-eos-r-my-suggestion-wait-a-few-months/#comment-485408 Canon really do seem to think that a full frame 4K camera will destabilise the C200 or something. But how about another theory - They are just in no rush. They don't need the extra sales right now and can only manufacture so many cameras and lenses. Instead they're holding stuff back for later, to give people a compelling reason to upgrade, whilst the competition plateau earlier. When you think about it makes business sense. But business is also about building the goodwill of your customers and keeping them loyal. This is where Canon are failing big-style while they chase $$$. The brand is taking an absolute battering. Quite a few people now have a borderline hatred of them, which is a real shame. I want to like Canon, but first they must give me a reason to do so. They are acting like Scrooge.
