Re: Sell a ton of "dslr"s. Yes A is dying. But...

"Notably, the need to switch between the vf and lcd is shared by the others which need to switch to liveview."

Wow. This is a great point, that I have not seen anyone make before!

I fret a lot about the A3000 putting people off the line, that maybe Sony went a little too low-end, but in this case, it makes perfect sense. On the other hand, if it *did* switch automatically, wouldn't that be a selling point over the dSLRs, for just a few bucks? I wonder if $50 worth of price might have gained them a lot more than $50 worth of customer satisfaction. I hope it is a success, though!
