…people are going to turn into a bunch of moronic sheep who all have to have the same thing, whether it's good or not. Their decision about what to buy will be entirely driven by the constraints of fashion, and their satisfaction will be derived from how small and lightweight their cameras are, not from how good their cameras are at taking photos. There will be no shallow depth-of-field, and no low light telephoto photography. Sports photography will be grim, and wildlife photography will be next to impossible.

SLRs have been at the forefront of photography for a generation. The reason for that is that they can be used to photograph almost anything, in ANY situation, and provide excellent results. No competing product has even come close, because while competitors have sometimes excelled in one area, they lost out too heavily in others.

If people are going to be so stupid that they simply buy the same thing as everyone else irrespective of what they want to do with it, rather than KNOWING what they want to photograph and searching out the best tool for the job, well…. then they're just a bunch of moronic sheep.

And that's sad.

No, please read my comments again.
