Not sure what is nonsense about it. SONY shooters are constantly telling us why they chose sony. Usually because sony have the DR that produces amazing images when crippled canon cant. Or that sonys 4k is the one and only thing that matters in the world. They clearly think these features will make them good whereas if they had a canon they would be failures. And i am not sure how i am bitter about that. I applaud Sony for milking that cash cow with what have (untill the a7r4) been sub par offerings. And the lack of appreciation of ergonomics by people who go from phones to FF is understandable so sony took 10 years to care about it because they didnt have to. Again. I applaud sony for being successful without the need to make good quality equipment. The focus on the spec sheet only at the cost of quality has been a smart move for them.Sorry but this is nonsense. You sound a little bitter about Sony’s success as you unfairly insult Sony users. Before I respond, I’m no Sony fanboy. I treat all cameras as simply tools to get the job done. Firstly, the reason many people have gone over to Sony is they had been fed up waiting for Canon (and Nikon) to step into the mirrorless market. Secondly, Sony, with the A7III have managed to create a remarkable camera for $2000 that has two card slots and IBIS (of course the A7III isn’t a perfect camera, far from it). Canon has so far nothing to compete on that price level. IBIS and two card slots look set to appear in a high end Canon that very few will be able to afford. Add to that Canon’s superb but expensive lenses. There are quite a number of Sony lenses and third party lenses for people who don’t need high end, big expensive glass. Sony glass might not be quite on par with L lenses but many working photographers use and are more than happy with them for the work they do. Also bear in mind that Canon’s most successful cameras are the consumer EOS M range. Simply producing superior products with prices out of reach for most consumers isn’t a measure of success.
