Re: Canon is Substance; Sony is Hype

This highlights one of the problems with the argument for switching to Sony: for most it's not grounded in any good reality, but it's just reacting to the hype. Sony is good at manufacturing hype based on spec sheets, and this is one more component of the Sony trap.

Reviewers fall for it, because their job depends on having something to hype, and that depends on new equipment with long spec sheets.

I don't blame the consumers; that's the way it's always been. Most people buy anything or everything based on emotion and perception, not facts and reason...it's just the way it is. But before one invests a lot of money into any camera system one should be careful.

I wonder if this person has even touched any of the Sony cameras? Because these cameras are not 'just good on spec sheets' once you shoot with them and see the images on screen. The detail and quality in the a7RIII is astonishing.

I've made this statement many times here and at some point, someone will tell me the stuff it already!

My reason for preferring my old tech 5DIII over the new Sony stuff is simple; the Sony is a terrible camera in hand.  I can't get past that fact and am quite sure that if I switched, I'd get up every morning and kick myself for buying a camera that I dislike.

The only other camera in this genre I'd consider would be Nikon.  Even though I like the menu and button layout of the Canon better, at least the Nikon would feel like what I think a camera should feel like.

Or, if I have a sudden influx of cash, I could get that terrific Fuji medium format machine.  Great in hand ergonomics, especially with that excellent battery grip design!  Take notice, Sony...
