It doesn't matter if you innovate something and keep the patent in the closet lol. It matters when users can actually use those technology. I'm fine with a company that is 'aggregating resource'. They are bringing the technology to the masses while canon is a slow moving dinosaur. I hope they be able to give canon a good run for their money.
There's another company that's been killing it with a lot of that tech -- that being Pentax -- but they lack the sexy sensors and that terminates the 'internet forum love flowchart' at Step 1.
But have a hard look at the K-1. That's a mirrorslapper's A7R with more tech onboard than the EM-50 Urban Assault Vehicle.
For some reason -- and it very well might be flange distance allowing adaptor and existing lenses -- folks fawn over the A7 platform while the K-1 is a bridge too far, it's too painful of a migration, etc. Yet functionality and handling-wise, the K-1 is probably a more natural fit for Nikon and Canon folks.
Yet Sony is the disruptive innovator that will take over the world, while Pentax is the tool for the weird kids on the science team. Go figure.
