Iceberg what iceberg?

I write this from my bed having contracted tonsillitis at either BVE or the Photography show.

Despite the discomfort I have felt driven to write this post.

The moment you see a featherweight Sony A7R next to truck sized  Nikon D800 in-the-flesh you realise that the game is going somewhere different.

Though perhaps someone should tell the management at Canon if this interview with Canon CEO Masaya Maeda on DPreview is anything to go by.

He makes a lot of valid points but to some extent he is living a little in the past.

To hold up the EOS D70 as a sample of their stills innovation, in the face of the (relatively) rule rewriting new kids on the block is delusional to say the least.

Much can be lost in translation but this is worrying to say the least.
