If I switched I wouldn't have access to 5 of those top sensors, seeing as they reside in Nikon bodies.

I find posts like these pretty much only generate negative feedback.

Those popular camera awards can be pretty suspect as often there are some pretty glaring errors in the reviews.

As for the sensors, it's great the Sony is making high quality sensors, but I am not going to buy a camera because it has one brand of sensor in it or not, there are more important criteria to me for making a camera choice.

Sony are the biggest sensor manufacturer in the world so they really ought to be in the top division!

It would be strange if they made the most sensors for cameras and phones and were in the bottom of the league! They must be good thats why others buy them!

It's well known that Sony make some good sensors. For themselves but also for Pentax, Nikon and Olympus. And the latter 3 make better camera's.

So why should I switch? I have an Olympus camera with old 12MP Panasonic sensor but I am very happy with it. If I want to upgrade in the future I don't have to switch.

If there was any confusion about who's the husband and who's the wife, that is.

Canon has been so thoroughly trashed by Sony I wonder why they even bother anymore.

Probably not until prominent galleries begin to accept and hang DR charts

Could it be because they make money selling cameras, probably more money than Sony, I would guess.  Well, I guess, EVERYONE makes more money than Sony right now, but that is beside the point.
