Not really. If you were buying into a camera system, and had an eye to still be using that system in 5+ years, would you buy Sony? I certainly wouldn't. How many different mounts have Sony produced over the last few years? And have they managed to provide a comprehensive lens lineup for any of those mounts? And will they still be making any of them in 5 years?I'm impressed with his candor, but also with the Fuji products. If wouldn't surprise me if
ten years from now the big camera vendors are Canon, Fuji and Samsung.
It would surprise very much when there are brands like Nikon and Sony
Fuji is a small manufacturer, why would they suddenly become larger than Nikon, Sony?
Fuji is also a survivor. While Kodak went belly up, Fuji successfully navigated the transition from film (once their primary product) to digital.
Will they displace Nikon or Canon? I doubt it. But, I did read once that Fuji is the company that Canon was most concerned about, so maybe the admiration is mutual. Personally, I'm not convinced Sony is in the photography business for the long haul. Maybe as a supplier, but not sure I would invest in their system for fear it could disappear.
This lacks all credibility, Fuji are buying sensors from Sony and Toshiba, Sony has 60% of the world sensor market
