Sony wants to have it's hands in everything consumer related, but
lets face it, are they going to build Sony cars, NO.

No..but they will probable build your house hold help in a year or 10 to 15..if you want it is a second

There's a WHOLE lot more behind a great camera other that a great
sensor, or body, or lens, or feel, or price etc. It all has to work

playing catch up with Nikon, as all the others are, Sony will take
another 50 years before they are there. No worries.

In Japan Sony dslr cameras' are getting quite populair, probable because of the poor quality price ratio and that they miss the basis of 'ol mechanical camera design
