Re: Real innovators don't listen to their customers!

Their actual customers for any new mirrorless system should have been their existing customers who already owned their other lenses, speedlights and heavy DSLRs. Only the FT-1 comes close to addressing this....

Really? I strongly disagree.

I own a Nikon V1 and have never owned any Nikon cameras or lenses in my life before.

It's this conservative - "ooh we must hang onto our customers" thinking that is so crippling the established camera manufacturers.

If your product is good enough people will buy it regardless! - FujiX100, Sony Rx100 , Sony RX1, Sony NEX, Olympus OMD....all good cameras , all luring people over from other brands...not to mention countless mobile phones consigning cameras to dusty confines of a cupboard!
