Did anybody happen to see this recent article in the New York Times? http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/15/t...ind-in-the-tech-parade.html?_r=4&pagewanted=1 Sony has a new CEO, who is now faced with directing a corporation that has lost money for four straight years. Will he be able to find something, anything, that Sony can transform into a "hit"? Will he be able to get Sony engineers to actually create a decent camera for once? I was reading the Luminous Landscape's review of the Sony NEX-7; after six solid months of using it basically daily, Michael Reichmann had nothing good to say about the camera's menu and controls. Apparently the custom menus are a total disaster, and the camera has a state of the art APS-C sensor (24 MP!), but it suffers from having zero custom control parameter sets, so when one wishes to re-configure the camera, one must re-set each and every shooting parameter one at a time...Ugh! My impression of the Sony NEX-7 camera after reading Reichmann's 6,000-frame, six month review? Good hardware + crappy software = sub-standard user experience. This is what The New York Times refers to as the way Sony has not been able to "nail" a single,solitary product in years... I do not want Sony to fail, but Sony has lost a huge amount of ground to Samsung Electronics. I want to see them compete,and to offer some good products that have the bugs worked out before they are sold.
