duely noted!

sometimes i cant seem to figure out where thom hogan is coming from, for a long time he complained and moaned about DSLR video, now he moans and complains that it is not progressing fast enough. he also seems to think that if there is not some ground breaking new innovation with every new camera model that the company is screwing up.

sony the so-called king of innovation seems to get a lot of notice from him, but so far thier innovations sort of suck in my view, if Nikon and Canon had sonys financial backing they could afford to half-*** and rush-release new technologies like the EVF and take the loss that sony is willing to do. Im sorry but the current EFV is a damn joke. I absolutly would NOT buy an A33 or A55 for that reason alone. Apparently the next iteration will have a much better EFV, but the current one totally jacks the A33 and A55 up in my opinion.

Aside from giving wireless capabilities to the camera to help integrate it further into the digital realm, im not sure how much the wheel can be re-invented.

but i do enjoy his blog for the most part, he often shows very good insight, and many of his predictions are dead on.

Well since I own a few mirrorless bodies, I can tell you this...

In the Olympus community, there seems to be a rift between the four thirds bodies owners & the micro four thirds body owners.

Sony has learned from the α33/55 & the α77 *should* be a formidible force
