Why key features were omitted on the A5xx.
Dec 17, 2009

If the A5xx had all the features an enthusiast could want, including MLU, dual dials, dof preview etc...

Why would anyone buy the A7xx when it is released?

It used to be that the more you paid for a digital camera, the better image quality (sensor performance) you expected. As technology and manufacturing capabilities advance, better image quality is attainable with cheaper cameras.

If Sony wanted to, they could have made the A5xx cameras everything that any enthusiast could ever want - for only a few dollars more.

They left out the enthusiast level features on purpose, to ensure that enthusiasts spend more money on the more expensive A7xx when it is released, in stead of opting for a cheaper camera that offers the same IQ and performance.

I really really hope I'm right - because that would mean that there is hope that the A7xx will be a real photographer's machine.
