Sony is what Sony always has been. A lot of flash in the pan specs on paper with comparably lacking performance. I used to sell Sony ES audio gear 20 years ago and nothing has changed. The Marantz and Denon products (Amplifiers and Home Theater devices) always lagged on paper in terms of max power and bells and whistles.... but they sounded so much better in the real world. Canon can compete based on real world performance against the likes of Sony, because Sony still puts actual performance and results second place behind bright lights and shiny objects. Canon needs to be mindful that people are highly susceptible to shiny objects. And when they shank features without cause, these shiny objects become more appealing. If Canon continues to base their entire business model on stills shooters, they may have a rude awakening down the road. People clamor for Canon quality, but they can’t be forever expected to ignore the lack of desire by Canon to accommodate reason and sanity. The RP really bit hard. Canon needs to address this because too many Canon video die hards who have defended them for years were insulted with this.
