This morning all hell broke loose at Canon USA and Canon Inc. in Tokyo. The scene at the office looked like a scene from a WWII movie. A few people even got injured. It almost looks like martial law has been implemented. Upper management has gathered in a room behind closed doors, where there’s a direct uplink with Japan. Private guards are standing outside and nobody is allowed to go in.
The reason for all the commotion is the image above. It appears Nikon is up to something BIG, some kind of announcement by the 20th of November, possibly earlier. We don’t know exactly what it is yet but our informants have a pretty good idea. I can tell you that the future doesn’t look so good at the moment here at Canon. The situation is very tense here right now, and saying the wrong thing at the wrong time could cost you dearly. I have another conference call coming up right now with Japan, so I’m off for now.
