fullstop said:simple. Digital cameras don#t need mirrors in them. For film SLRs it was the only way to "see and meter thru the lens". Outdated early 20th century reflex technology has only managed to drag itself into the 21st century because the market dominating CaNikon duopoly found they can really easy money by selling iteration after iteration of marginally improved, same old stuff and cream off people with that, until they eventually might move to a more "digitally adequate" future-proof, mirrorless design concept...
...I want a good, compact FF mirrorless system. Soon now. That's all I care about. It does not matter to me whether millions of others want to cling onto their DSLRs for dear life...
...But Canon and Nikon have been refusing to take my money and that of many others ...we are being DENIED just that.
...Yes, I am a tad bit angry. OMG! But me [and many other "average amateur/enthusiast" people] are just totally fed up how Canon and Nikon have been BLOCKING the development of mirrorless cameras and refused to offer us decent mirrorless cameras for so long...
...Demand is there. Lots of it. Supply side on Canon and Nikon side is what sucks!..
...I truly hope, Sony will take market leadership from Canon...Conservative money milkers have not deserved any better.
You do realize, I hope, that your rant sounds like a crazy conspiracy theoy.
Isn't it a much more logical and reasonable explanation that Canon and Nikon are conservative companies that have not wanted to jump into a market that is unproven, and especially, have not wanted to jump into such a market with technology that has so many compromises that it would damage their hard-earned brand reputation to release an inferior product until the technology is reliable?
Isn't it also logical that they have been content to watch Sony expend millions (possibly billions) experimenting in the marketplace, while they conserve resources until the market and technology is ready?
And, finally, if you really don't care about what technology others choose, why are you so insistent on insulting and denigrating competing technologies and the users of those technologies?
