MLU Petition to Sony
Nov 25, 2009

It is clear that the MLU feature is a basic feature that should be included in all Sony's DSLRs, whatever the segment. The cost of inclusion is minimal as far as we can understand, so there is no reason why it cannot be included in future models, or ideally added as a feature via a firmware update.

I therefore propose that, rather than repeating the frustration of missing MLU in every single thread on this board we attempt a rather more serious approach which may lead to a more concrete response from Sony. This consists of responding to this thread with a simple phrase to show agreement with the following:

We believe a mirror lock-up feature should be included in all Sony DLSRs. This feature greatly helps for tripod-mounted shots, and is complimentary to the recent LV feature implemented in the A5xx series. We formally request that this feature is included in all future Sony DSLRs, and is implemented via firmware update in current DLSRs.

Please keep responses to a single sentence, on topic and explicitly giving support for this petition. Please post only once. Please do not use this thread for discussion. If you don't support the petition please express this by simply not posting in the thread. After a week, on 2nd December, we'll close the petition and send it off. If there are more than 150 replies we will open a new thread.

Perhaps, knowing that this approach is being taken, we can avoid filling the board with MLU discussion.
