Re: Shaking in my boots

Thom continues to grab at straws, his much beloved Nikon having totally tanked with the J1/V1  series which has remained stillborn due to too-small a sensor size and poor lens selection.

Now he trots out the EOS-B as his next theoretical mFT killer.  The EOS-B is a non-starter for those interested in small size systems.  We've danced round and round this, but what good is a body made small if the lenses remain large?  And it sounds ungainly as well, too narrow to hold comfortably, yet tall and thick so as to remain effectively large; weird combination.  And it will still have a Canon sensor, several generations behind Sony's.  Thanks, but no thanks.

And Nikon already owns this niche in any case with both the D3200 and D5200.

For those wanting a truly small and high quality system, Olympus simply nailed it with the E-M5 and available mFT lenses.  Success speaks louder than Thom's foolish braying.

Have fun, Canon, while continuing your swan dive in the small full-featured IL camera market.  And yes, the EOS-B will be an elephant, but one shaded pink.  My prediction.
