Very true, as long as the overheating during video isn't a problem for the buyer. I think this version had a lot of trouble with that. Weather sealing too. Of course, don't know what the weather sealing will be like on the RP. Canon seems to do a great job at it though.Well, if it's sub-$800 it's still a pretty good deal and an excellent way of having an entry-level model. And then there's the matter of design. The original A7 is more appealing than the later models and the ergonomics are good enough for small lenses and casual use.
