Some consumers will buy it for sure....Nikon have to tweak the firmware of the Zeeees....and get a dual slot model out immediately or their 20k production a month wont last too many months!

And Canon are not in the game!....

Depends on how you define "The Game".

None of them is in "The MF Game".
Sony leads in "The FF Game"
Canon leads in "The Japan Game"
Sony leads in "The US FF Game"
etc

If Sony pays you for promoting Sony, then you are fine. But if Sony don't pay you, then you are being mistaken.

At least betting on horses or playing lottery, you have a small chance of being rewarded financially. But betting on camera brands, usually, will be a total waste of time for you, because you will not even receive $1 from Sony for promoting them, not even $1, nothing, nicht, niente, nada.

Every company is playing their own game. The only people who care about the collective game are the reviewers. The companies and the consumers don't.

Sony camera are not at all comparable to Apple, Sony mirrorless cameras are comparable to the PCs. Reason is, Sony ergonomics sucks, totally in opposition with the design phylosophy of Apple.

Well, they shouldn't. But some people confuse themselves with salespersons, the difference is, the actual salespersons get paid for promoting a product, while the confused brand fanatic gets NOTHING.

Cameras are not a good substitute for Tennis balls, when using a camera all you get is a hole in your racqet

What do you mean who is going to catch Sony? Canon way out sells Sony already. Whatever they add going down the road will only continue their market dominance. My understanding is that in Japan, Canon is the number one mirrorless seller. It is easy to pick and choose data from different places in the world to show that Sony is achieving some kind of market dominance, but when I see people using ILCs, I seldom see Sony.

The people who claim Sony's dominance are almost uniformly on their payroll which makes their comments suspect.

Nikon is just getting serious, Canon will follow soon with a more serious offer.
Where is Hasselblad going? Is the large z mount something for Pentax - large mount for 35 and 120 formats.
Btw Pentax is the only major player that stick to historic mount. Canon, Olympus, Nikon, Minolta... they all changed at some point. Nikon still has f mount, but for how long?
