How about the first Sony NEX-3? Or the first Fujifilm X-E1?

Or even the first Nikon Z and Canon R cameras, that were replaced by better versions.

I even remember the Sony A55 being hailed as the camera of the year in 2010 due to the revolutionary SLT design. Today, I would have a hard time giving my A55 away for free. In fact, I DID give it to my brother for free, and he returned it because he didn't like it. Even if I still think of it as a great camera.

Back in 2008 M4/3 was truly revolutionary. Today when compared to cameras from the same system today, not so much.

Every technology gets better over time, and MILC cameras are no exception to that.

I think that the A7R must be close to the worst camera that ever started a new movement.  I still have mine (bought used at a low price).
