@Wafflebird. My hunch is that Canon will struggle to catch up on Dynamic Range and perhaps other aspects of an integrated image processing chip.  This hunch is based on 20+ years on the product side of semiconductors for consumer electronics.  There was a time when it paid off to be vertically integrated but now the competition for image processing silicon is huge and not only for the camera market.  Nikon can perhaps innovate quicker because they are open to buying a Sony chip, for example.  Companies like Fuji and Sony are not encumbered by too much legacy and so can innovate quickly too.

Hope this explains my somewhat off-the-cuff remark.
