Their curved sensor is still rigid.
Absolutely - Samsung has come from nowhere in the mobile phone market, to become one of the market leaders, Sony has a reputation for making huge money, then dropping the ball, look back at Walkman, Hi8, Betamax, minidisc etc, which is why given their sole backing of the full frame mirrorless market, makes me feel uncomfortable and why I'm pretty sure it will flop and the crop Mirrorless product will succeed.
HTC & Apple are others to watch, no product in the market but a great following for quality and big pockets to buy one of the established brands technology - Pentax, Leica, Sigma or Fuji perhaps ? The market will be very different in 2020, but one thing is for sure, Canon & Nikon will still be big players
