The last Sony TV I bought (in the 90ies, Black Trinitron) broke down half a year after the warranty ran out...
I wish you more luck...
I have had good luck with them. I had a 36-inch "Picture Tube" style Trinitron which lasted 13 years. I affectionately referred to it as the ten-ton TV :) . I replaced it with my current one which is now 10 years old. Time for a new one soon, I think. I am not sure what I will get. I'll admit that I bought the string of Sony's because I didn't want to re-program the remotes :-(.

Now Canon step it up 2-3 levels and show absolute overpowering product strength and dominate sales. Make the R5 just a start to far far greater things. NO more cripple products ever again. Finally provide even the consumer entry level cameras with state of the art sensors. Delete features not image quality. That will really make sales. Do like was done with film. A Canon TLb would take as good a photo in quality as a F-1. You just did not have the finders, motor drive etc. but you had the same film (Today known as a sensor) and same lenses. Please Canon do not put out crappy sensors any more give all a quality sensor.

I prefer Canon’s old slogan to the one mentioned here;

”The image of precision.” Short, sweet and definitive.

I made a video for a customer of mine and also bought him a Sony 4k tv to put in his shop window.
That TV has been running 24/7 for 2 years now and is still going strong.

Congrats to Canon.
Now, what about a nice 1:1 macro lens of around 100mm for my R?

Lies. Sony is #1 in sales all over the world. Everyone is buying a Sony and ditching their Canon.
Hold on Poppel. I just ditched my Sony A7rIII for a Canon EOS R for two simple reasons. First-Canon as well as Nikon understand how to build a complete cameraI not just a box with a sensor in it. Secondly-my two favorite lenses that I used on my Sony we're both older Canon EF lenses. Got tired of not being able to have reliable autofocus with those lenses. Boy am I glad I did so much more enjoyable to use. We'll talk about the cameras but the bottom line is the lenses and for me Canons glass is my preference.

Now they are regretting it terribly with the R5 showing what Canon has up it's sleeve.
I mentioned previously that canon is not first. Look at the EOS EF system. Nikon fanboys made fun of it then Canon cut loose with the Pro level cameras and Nikon went into the tank and has never recovered.
This R5 makes the a9II look stone age, can you imagine the R1 and how it will be by comparison.

My Sony TV in the living room is a 46" model bought in 2009. It works as well as ever. The Sony Blu-Ray player works well most of the time, but has peculiar glitches occasionally with commercial DVDs, probably some sort of software mismatch. But it works a lot better than the Samsung it replaced.
