Campagnolo led innovation until the mid eighties... after that they have been following the trend.
They adopted wide BB axle late, they got to electric shifting late, they got to hydraulics last. I would not look at Campagnolo for innovation to be honest
This thread reminds me of the Apple vs Samsung debates I read in the tech forums. My take is this: I really do not care who is making innovative stuff or not, but rather who can implement a given technology better and more reliable. In other words, I could care less if Campy is last to produce Disc Brakes as long as theirs is the best in the market! I do not care if they are last with a wireless shiftier as long as it shifts like their current wired stuff. Let others innovate and let other unwise buyers beta test the first thing that comes around in any technology... I will wait for the best application of that technology once it's proven and well tested.
As I have mentioned many times, Campy is not a multi-billion dollar company and they do not have the luxury to put out products in the market that may be recalled. This will put them out of business real fast.
I do believe that Campy is long over due for a refinement of their EPS group sets, but I really hope is just not smoke and mirrors like may have done.
I like to mention that for "innovation" Campy also beat Shimano and Sram on their implementation of an app with Bluetooth to work on their EPS group-sets and who can forget about the Ultra-torque crank-set! It's by far, the most durable and easy to maintain BB/crank-set combination in the market!
