What do you believe is a camera and system that will appeal particularly to the Chinese, but maybe not "to the rest of us"? I suspect all the Chinese people do not think and want exactly the same things. Just like all other people all around the world.

It would be naive to assume that every market world-wide is identical. To give just one example, I assume that the average disposable income in China is less than the average for participants of this forum. So perhaps a device targeted to that market would sacrifice functionality for a lower price. But maybe that's a prejudice I have that is not justified, so my question is legitimate - how would a product designed to appeal to Chinese tastes fail to attract a more global market? I've already seen examples of products for the Japanese market that fail to catch on internationally.

I go to China pretty often from HK and see far more big white lenses at sailing events than I do in the West. I don't have the figures to back up my observation, but think that the average Chinese photographer that I see spends far more than the average spent by members here.

Perhaps you're right, they will not be bothered by the low cost consumer kit which most of us have to live with
