I wouldn't buy anything from Sony that I didn't absolutely have to. Virtually everything I've ever purchased from that company was a disappointment and I don't see their photographic equipment any differently.

One example is the lossy RAW format Sony uses that a recent study with RAW Digger found posterization in properly exposed files most likely due to the lossy compression format. Sony is not an imaging company, they are a huge conglomerate with many divisions that come and go as Sony views the market trends. I wouldn't be surprised if Sony was not in the camera business 5 or 10 years from now.

As for Foveon I've seen interesting results and bad results. At this time I don't see Foveon as being any slam dunk over Bayer or Fuji's X-Trans so I wouldn't be too concerned as IMO it has a long way to go and it may never get there.

It's interesting that you just sold your Canon SLR system right when the rumors are that Canon is about to announce something revolutionary which is long overdue from Canon. If anything, I'd have hung on to the Canon gear until the announcement was made and then moved forward from there. That's precisely what I'm doing as I've shot Canon for nearly 40 years but just added an XT1, 18-55 and 55-200 to my bag all which I love. I'm holding off on selling most or all of my Canon gear until I see what they announce as I expect it will give me a clearer picture of where Canon is headed in the future and whether it fits with my needs.

Good luck,

Sony seems to have the stunning ability to mix genius and idiocy in equal measures in the same product, even more than the other camera makers I am familiar with.

As far as 'something revolutionary' coming from Canon, wasn't a lot of that fueled by that Canon India thing, that turned out to be a cheesy photo competition? I know there is a lot wild-eyed speculation going on otherwise, though. I guess we will see in a few weeks at that big photography gear event. If nothing happens then, that shouldn't dampen the rumor mill much, though, there is another big event in early 2015, I think?

Personally, I am still waiting for my flying car and robot maid/cook.

Not because I think they are good, but because I would like to improve (feel free to provide me with feedback):
