ibender: Camera company fanboy nonsense is almost as bad as video game console wars.

I'll third that :)

The Silver Nemesis: This is good to influence the perception - but is there a lens ms graph somewhere? Or, all these people who bought the cameras already have a bag of Sony lenses...?!

P. S.: that was easy...

Good point! Very good point.

proudfather: I think Son'y statement comes as preparation for Nikon's and Canon's pending FF mirrorless camera releases, trying to market themselves as the dominating brand in an effort to prevent would-be customers or those that might cross over.

Of course, Sony does lead the mirrorless market....for now. But leap frogging will be inevitable. Historically, leap frogging occurred between Nikon and Canon. The difference is now there's a 3rd contender, which of course is great for the consumer.

I thought the exact same thing. To me it seemed like a "panicked" response to the upcoming competition and announcements.

007peter: SO MUCH >> HATE << here against Sony, this is how I know Sony is doing something right.

Ill argue it Peter, just because nobody else has yet. :) Fuji, are the fastest growing and aggressive camera maker :) Look at what they have achieved since first introducing the X100.

StillLearning: This should make the Sony owners happy for a little time. Reminds me of when a movie first comes out and takes the weekend. They advertise that they are the top movie in the world. Well enjoy it while they can. Still doesn't draw me to their product. In the 70's and 80's they really had products that would last. After that now so much. Remember it was Minolta that helped Sony get a leg up in the camera business.

Here's the part where someone is left to argue with themselves :)

Mortal Lion: Yet another Sony story. Dpreview seems to suffer from a Sony obsession. Maybe it should be renamed to DSPreview.

I didn't get that impression at all Mortal Lion. Seemed a fair analysis of DSLR vs. the Sony mirrorless A9, lenses, etc.

Actually you didn't call it mirrorless just yet, it was some time before a common term was to be used. I coined the term Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Camera "MILC" was the acronym. But mirrorless was much more simple and ended up sticking.

Thinking on it all again, I almost think Compact Mirrorless would be a better term since other mirrorless cameras came way before what Oly or Pana offered, Leica for example. Anything under full frame could be Compact Mirrorless, and full frame and over would be Mirrorless. :)

EskeRahn: So sad, but is this the right forum for images like this?

@PLShutterbug- Switching a topic from devastating images of people losing their homes to one of "Global warming" is a political statement, no matter how you spin it. I live right by the fires, I know people who lost their homes in Holy Jim canyon (leased cabins from the USFS). I also know people in Redding that lost homes as well. Maybe you ought to get with the program here.

This is not an environmental issue, how troubling are these comments. Its a family and human issue. Wildfires have always been a devastating issue. Perhaps you should switch your online efforts to having some compassion for those who have suffered, and making efforts to punish arsonists more severely who love the attention they get on the news and internet, rather than attempting to support a political agenda. How disheartening.

Redding was the worst ever. I live right behind the Holy Jim Fire, and had to evacuate my daughter yesterday because of how bad the smoke was. I thought that was bad, I can't imagine losing my home. My heart goes out to all who have lost so much.

cgarrard: This is so silly Nikon. You underestimate the intelligence of photographers by doing this. If you are first at bat, sure I get it. But mirrorless has been around for a long time now. Trying to generate interest at this point in the game this way is very unimpressive. Be straight shooters and look like you respect your photographers.

My opinion has nothing to do about success! I don't care if it is or not, its silly. And don't forget Nikon's success with the Nikon 1 campaign if you must go there ;).

Has nothing to do with ignorance Sandy B. It's called opinion. To me the whole thing stinks and has been done over and over and over again. Just because you disagree doesn't make it ignorance.

Being that the population is more women then men, they just alienated a huge portion of buyers then :)
