and besides which, who cares and how is this relevant ? i already explained to you that sales are not a defining moment in the perforamnce of a dslr.
why would i want an out ? did you not read my last post ? i think SLT is a great example of innovation and a very smart move by sony. but no, i dont necessarily think its a game changer, its an innovation that looks very interesting but in its very early phases of development. i think m4/3 and NEX are far more marketable and really are game changers more so than SLT.
I know you keep harping on with 'DSLR' which gives you an out regarding SLT's, but do you think they're a completely different camera? is a A55 a completely different camera from a A580? much like a hydrogen fuel celled car is still a car, or in your world is it a completely different mode of transport? it's an improvement on a 40+ year design.
What if Canikon pick it up? will it be a game changer then?
If canon and nikon pick it up it wont change my opinion one iota.
so whay are you arguing then ? i dont think it will clearly be a better camera personally. sony have hyped every camera they have ever released and they invariabley end up being about middle of the road which is exactly where sony pitch their products to be...MIDDLE of the road at best but mostly to the lower end of the market.
I personally don't think it'll be a game changer, will it be a better camera than it's competition? I won't know that until it comes out.
No they've had 30 years to gather a rather large flock of sheep.
its my opinion based on what i've experienced, what the camera reviews are telling us and what somehwere like DxoMark scores the sensors. thats what a forum is about. i am quite capable of critical thinking and forming my own arguments; i dont need to quote articles or make up stories to substantiate my position.
I'd like to read the article you got this info from? do you have a link? or is it just your opinion?
what part of what i wrote do you not agree with ?
lol how is that evidence ? that is sony making a statement about what they are planning. what did you expect them to say ? "yeah going to release another camera and it'll be more of the same."
I replied with that evidence (I even put it in bold for you): Where the hell did I mention anything about converting you? I simply gave you the 'evidence' you were asking for!
surely you understand how this cannot be considered as evidence ? please tell me yu can understand the differences here...
what do you mean "yeah so ?" do you not recognise the limitations of quoting sony marketing when discussing their products to mount a convincing argument ? do you not understand how that severly comprimises the integrity of what you're saying ?
Ummmmm yeh so? actually I just realised my mistake, I should've asked you for a statement as it's perfectly clear you know more about what Sony are doing in their DSLR department than the Sony President of Personal Imaging & Sound Business Group does....
look, i have no probem debating with anyone; but you need to bring more to the table than silly pictures, linking articles with no relevance and quoting sony's marketing machine. use some of your own judgement and lower your blood pressure a little, you're coming across as a hysterical child having a dummyspit.
