Don't knock it, they have a business model that works, it's anchored firmly in the distant past and relies on the base staying uninformed, but it turns a profit so more power to them. Just don't confuse it with discussions of quality.

Indeed. Just ask GM, Ford and Chrysler.  Like Canon/Nikon, they sat around with their thumbs up their butts while the world changed around them.  Yet they remained stuck in the same old/same old, and expected nobody would notice.  Too late, they tried to hide beneath the American flag, hoping it wouldn't expose their incompetence.

They lost the initiative, then lost their dominance.  The scale is different, but the same thing is happening in photography.  I doubt the Japanese government will expend $billions to bale out Canon & Nikon.
