I say it to everyone. Don't bet on sony, canon, or nikon yet. Now that they big two have entered FF MILC, and not even a year has passed, it is simply too soon to call it. People are grasping at straws when they do. Canon will focus on lenses a lot, while sony will push the body features as much as possible to compensate for what they lack in terms of lens design. Sony is still good at it, but I don't expect f1.2 lenses or for them to match the potential price, size, weight that the wider Z/RF mounts will provide us.

Well said.  This was in part my reasoning for choosing the RP.  I am open to every system right now but there are features and specs I like about each one so I went with the least expensive option that met all my needs sans a few wants (IBIS & weather sealing!).  I also went with the 24-105 EF STM as again it cost less but I will also be able to use it on a Sony should that be a direction I later choose.  I’ve been somewhat shocked how much I like the RP.  I thought it would feel and perform like a budget camera, thankfully it does not.
