The M and the A are going to compete with each other, and what exactly distinguishes the A from all the Sonys and Olys out there? And at the entry level, who knows or cares what sensor is inside? THis just seems a strange marketing decision to me.


That's the point- the Bayer sensor is presumably cheaper. Entry level buyers aren't going to care if it has an AA filter or the X-trans color filter.

It seems to make sense to me. They're trying to get some of the lower end part of the market. There are only so many enthusiasts willing to buy the really expensive bodies. I don't know if it it'll work, but I'd say the same for similar moves by mirrorless makes across the board.
