Talk about a downgrade in reliability. To go from the 1DX II, which is an absolute tank, used by pro's all across the world in the harshest of conditions, to a camera that cannot even hold up under a backyard water hose...

The Sony cameras are designed to leak a small amount of water into the camera ?

The Sony camera is designed to be fragile and break under defined conditions ?

After working on consumer electronic products for over 25 years I believe Sony designs flaws into their products.

I believe one problem is that Sony chooses to cram their products with features and sacrifices quality to keep the cost down.

The A7iii is praised by many for all if its features at it price: but there is no such thing as a free lunch and something has to give.

I believe for Sony that sacrifice may be fundamental quality and durability.
