Banal, unchallenging photographs that pretty much anyone could take, with pretty much any camera - hardly a test of what a given body is capable of.
Isn't that kind of the point? Most camera users won't push their camera -the very fact that any camera can now take these unchallenging photos says something. That the NEX-7 is showing that the bar is being raised - will lay people believe or feel that there is now less to differentiate between a NEX-7 for example, and higher end but longer in the tooth dSLRs like the 5D MkII?
Between great, and good enough. I'd agree - it's not the simple easy shots that should differentiate, and more challenging shots,video will show this. But will consumers agree? I'm guessing higher end 5D MkII customers make up less of the camera market profits than NEX-7 and below models?
