Re: We wuz robbed !!!!!

R Butler made it pretty clear the rating is subjective, and he dd not love the camera. 'Nuff said. A subjective rating is subjective and not arguable on a feature by feature basis.

Andy Westlake pointed out that Sony has been getting more than its (numerical) share of golds lately, and Canon not so many. This is not subjective, it is fact.

The Sony inferiority complex had its place when Sony couldn't quite make compelling products. But then the Nex and the SLT came along and things have changed. Sony at this point is getting great reviews, deservedly. The time for the inferiority complex has passed. Sony sales still lag Canikon, but in may ways their product leads.

Here is my list of hits in the past few years that shook things up:

S90/95/100 (one point or the series)
LX series/XZ-1 (one point)
Various SLT (two points, I would pick a55 & a77)
Nex 7 & 5n
The Canon FF dslr with best video (not sure which one)

Sony is WELL represented on that list
