Please no more "No video. If i want video i will go get a camcorder"!!!

In almost every thread about the future of Alpha cameras we can see that sentence (or similar one).

Pleaaaaase stop!

All dslr will have video on them in the future. It is a fact. Everybody is doing it, Sony will do it.
So if you don't want video, just ignore it. Or keep your current camera.

The worse part on that sentence is "go get a camcorder".

If I want to do video, I don't want to use those little camcorders with their microscopic sensor, no DOF control, no interchangeable lenses, etc.
And I don't want to carry another piece of equipment with me.

If I want a separate video camera that can do what a video-dslr can do, I will have to spend a lot of $$$. More than 5k probably. And it will be very huge and heavy!

Now that I am an advance amateur in photography, if I start doing video, using those camcorders will be like a downgrade to me.

Now, I think the best solution for a company like Sony would be to offer the feature as an option. Alpha-750 without video. Alpha-780 with video.
Then everybody will be happy.
