Fair enough

Finally, the white paper you quote is written by Canon USA for the
American (or English speaking) audience. I am relating to you what
the Japanese interview says.... In Japan I never saw the 5D as
promoted as for anything other than the "high amateur", as the 1
series was clearly marketed as the professional's camera.

However, I do business with Canon USA more directly than I do Canon JP.

I would imagine if Canon USA believes the camera has professional uses, then Canon JP should take note if they haven't already.

For a long-time global company to be as Japanese-centric as some folks on this forum would have us believe does not seem a reasonable assumption.

Interestingly, 'Canon USA' at least, seems to think the 20D has a little professionlism in it too.
