Perhaps you were replying to someone else?

Do Japanese speaking Canon employees hang out in drpreview who don't speak English.......no.

Do people like Chuck Westfall hang out in dpreview after putting in long hours working with Canon products and doing shows, etc........ no.

So where does Canon's feedback come from?

To begin with, from Japanese serious amateurs.

Pro's given Canon equipment such as Art Wolfe, top wedding photographers given equipment, these type are listened to.

Certain review sites will be noted.

Those that write in - in Japanese - are probably heard.

dpreview won't be on Canon's list to hear critiques, though the review section might be monitored by the likes of Chuck Westfall.

For the Japanese, the world does not revolve around North America, but around their own country, understandably.
