Re: Sony's Vision? What about the User's Vision?

I went with the A57 in 2012, and then a second A57 body on April 1st of this year when Sony started dumping them, because my aging vision needs live view EVF with associated data display in a dark box.

The way I "see" it, Sony is inadvertently enticing older buyers to hang around with the SLT EVF design, while at the same time providing the younger market segment, including legacy Sony fans, with a reason to avoid the A mount and purchase other brands.

So both the SLT design and the Minolta flash shoe design needed to go away not for technical reasons, but for marketing reasons. If the new A mount cameras don't focus as well as a Canonikon, so be it.
