Yup, everything seems different when you talk about sensor performance instead of megapixels and when you talk about competition instead of war.

Seems that everyone tries to uses loaded words rather than logic to prove their points.

Anyway, back to the topic at hand, I just hope Canon introduces new sensors with better performance. Instead it seems they are interested in "moving into new territory" whatever that means.

It was by no means a loaded word at the time.  People were amazed at the improvement in image quality of these new, affordable cameras.  And then, all of a sudden, chips were quickly increasing pixel count while image quality fell.  G6 7.1MP, G7 10MP, G9 12.1MP, G10 14.7MP, G11 10MP, G12 12MP, G15 12.1MP.....and these were some of the most modest increases.  Many much smaller chips were shooting up to 18MP and the images were awful.

That was the only way they were trying to sell cameras and it was a back and forth we kept hoping would finally quit.  Just like most wars, it was dumb and totally missed the point.
