Sony are not aiming at serious photographers. Instead they are aiming at well-off soccer moms and dads. They will only ever buy one lens (a zoom) and will conclude, merely because of the term full frame, that it will better meet their needs than APS-C by using the same shallow logic they use when they buy a 4-wheel drive SUV to take their kids to school.

Pure, unmitigated nonsense.  Sony is playing for the serious photographer with the A7.  Anyone with a functioning brain knows this.

Over at FM, a place with 10 times the number of serious photographers as here, there are two threads...just TWO, that total over 200 pages long of posts about interest, speculation, and now USE of the Sony A7.

Soccer mom's?  LOL.

I'm not even a Sony camera user but I just despise blatant fanboyism or misinformation.
