Dear Sony...
Feb 8, 2014

Once again sad story. Business losses, workers laid off, etc. Now we heard that Sony is going to "leave" TV business. It's funny but it seems like Sony can do technological wonders like Walkman, or Playstation or other numerous successful hits that defined the market for years. Sony can put FF sensor in a body almost the size of m43 cameras. It can make beautiful NEX cameras, some were even smaller than most m43. It truly can do wonders, like its sensors are today something other manufacturers have yet to catch up with.

And yet, look what is going on: Fuji is making a cake from old Sony 16Mp sensor. Some guys at Fuji forum are even comparing X-T1 with A7/R (who would have thought about that). What a great marketing job Fuji is doing if it can do that wonders using outdated (by today's technological pace) sensors? Sony can learn something from them.

So I'm asking myself why is that Sony's marketing or management or whoever it is up there, is holding back engineers and make every decision to destroy Sony's strength and direct company in different route? Are they doing that on purpose? Maybe management are sold out crooks working for other companies? I simply have no answers for many things that Sony did wrong lately (2-3 years time-frame).

They had a great NAME like NEX - whole digital camera world new it. It was instant hit like Walkman. Other companies were mimicking it, were trying to catch up with NEX success. Yet some stupid F*** up there decides to kill it. Now Sony you can suck up the results.

Now we heard news that apparently Imaging department is Sony's priority. Oh really? Is it? Well I suppose now we will have NEX name back. We will have NEX-7 successor announced promptly (not A6000). I suppose we will have at least 4-5 lenses for APS-C this year. We will have A-mount cameras, we will have new FF e-mount cameras like A6 or A8, A9. We will have truly fast and tracking AF in both APS-C and FF department. We will have Fuji like firmware support. We will have better UI, better QC, faster lenses. Exciting times to come. I'm ready to buy NEX-7 successor with 24mm f1.8 new designed Sony lens (not that expensive Zeiss). Bring it on or go to dust like TV business.
