It feels like Sony to Canon is like Apple to Microsoft.
Oh...flashy, overpriced and useless versus dependable, reliable and built to get the job done?
1. how is Sony flashy? i don't see how an a7 or a a6000 is flashy(a99 maybe more so)
2. how are the a7's or NEX's overpriced? the NEX series are very affordable and offer great features, at a much cheaper price than the EOS-M(outside of firesale prices.) The a7's are very affordable compared to other full frame options on the market. I bought my a7 at launch with a kit lens for under 2000 bucks(in China.)
3. my a7 isn't useless at all. I don't really understand how such an awesome camera can be dismissed so quickly as useless. My camera is small, easy to use, has lots of dials to change settings, programmable buttons, I love the EVF, and the image quality is superb. None of these aspects seem useless to me.
I do somewhat agree with the Apple Microsoft analogy, and I am actually an Apple hater(the only apple item I own is a 6 year old ipod,) however in this instance, I am greatly enjoying the Apple(Sony) offering while I am waiting optimistically that someday Microsoft(Canon) will copy their new innovations and make something a little more innovative and fresh.
