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

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.

You have an interesting viewpoint. I don't understand changing the hotshoe without having a flash to go with it. That adapter is so cludgy. Seems stupid, as if they're telling customers to go away.
