Every single time I report SONY's little devilish issues on Dyxum, it never fails someone complains about me complaining. These people need to pull their heads out of the sand and realize the the "corporate bunch" are not too interested in our opinions, anymore.

They were when they had to get the show on the road, back in 2006-2007, but that door slammed shut when they cut loose with the +30 series of ... ahem, P&S intro-DSLRs.

Ever since, it has been a slow, downhill race to downgrade every DSLR Minolta put on the block. Apparently, "If you can't beat 'em, eat 'em."

No, I am not happy to see my camera manufacturer run the equipment into the dirt. It is infuriating to the "nth" degree. The facts are there ... and you do not have to be a rocket-scientist to know something has gone rotten in Japan.
