Who cares about what Nikon is doing?

the o.p. opened that door when he brought up canikon in the first post to this thread.

it's also necessary to make certain posters understand how much better sony is with legacy compatibility.

Either way, Sony needs to worry about Canon not Nikon. Comparing Sony to Nikon.... is not a good thing, at the moment. (Hopefully Nikon will rebound).

Also, I am not sure why you get upset that people want Sony to better support their A-mount customers. Whats wrong with wanting better support, when we know Sony can do better. Its pretty shameful that they lock LA-EA3 features behind an A9 paywall.

no, sony enabled advanced focusing capabilities with the laea3/3rd-gen a7 bodies.

And when did they release firmware 2.0 (For the A7iii/A7Riii) to enable those focusing capabilities? October 2018, the same time the EOS R was released. I am sure that was just a coincidence.

a-mount has been a crippled format all along, the f/3.5 fixed aperture limit with af/video mode is absolutely ridiculous, and it has nothing to do with e-mount.

a-mount is going the way of dslrs, so get over it.

The Fixed F3.5 aperture limit is just another example of how Sony has purposefully crippled A-mount users, and users who want to migrate. They treat their oldest ILC customers with disdain.

Metabones and Sigma has more features with EF mount lenses than the Sony's LA-EA3.   And even still Sony hides adapter features behind an A9 paywall, and imo its shameful.
