Who is impressed with the new announce, and who is not?

Well, the original rumors, that E-mount and FF sensors were video-driven (VG900), gave us Nex and A7 cameras. We should be impressed that, upon the initial Nex' success, Sony stayed the course and catered to a market segment in terms of lenses, camera bodies, sensors, leading to class-leading and award winning products.

The 4k announcement for video-graphers is a big deal - this is a cheaper solution that allows higher IQ, easier with the constant aperture zoom lenses.

For photographers, it gives us a new option. 12Mp may be deemed too little, but against a very high (native) ISO, it is rather impressive, for half the price of the Df. What would you want to use when shooting weddings? ISO 24,600 or ISO 6,400 - if same noise levels?

More impressive is that the other vendors are letting Sony do what it does - it can not be that hard to put together the pieces and see Sony's strategy, is it?

I know, Sony is the underdog, but it seems that electronics is taking over the once optical world, and I would bet on Sony for a while longer - they surely are on a roll
