    Use to Sony as I come from Minolta side, I stick to Sony on dslr. Nvm that, for video camera, phone n upcoming action cam, also Sony. Maybe due to the interface which i am used to it and learning from other brand, confused me at time. So, u mostly stick to a brand or change according to what you like in that brand?

    The glass dictates what I will use. Branding is so old fashioned.
    Expand your mind or get left behind

But for pc, I never get from Sony, I build my own. Another Sony product is the old flat screen crt tv. Those days Sony are good but nowadays, so many brands liao, scary!

    Most of the time I just get Sony, even for non-photography items. Happy to pay a small premium for a decent product.

    I got the Xperia Z ultra due to large screen but slim body. I am a big size guy, so, having it with me seems like no impact. People also use ipad when walking or outside, what is my Sony, haha! I ditched GoPro for Sony AS200 due to I can play with the wifi/nfc/gps on it

    Sony will dominate the future of digital cameras with their range of mirrorless new products.

    Maybe they also destroying their own business as if product too expensive, less customers will buy it. Nowadays all use mobile phone n selfie stick during tour liao. For me, more than $3k for a product, I got to think on the usage on it. Like a $5k Samsung fridge, would you buy it. I wouldn't, haha!

    do you use a camera everyday? yes? no?

    do you use a fridge everyday? yes? no?

    can you live comfortably without a camera? yes? no?

    can you live comfortably without a fridge? yes? no?

    so which is a necessity item and which is a luxury item?

    and which one would you think you should spend more money on it?

    anyway, nothing last forever, companies come and go.

    there are so many camera manufactures close down over the years.

    when one day the company decide to give up one of their products, the business, or close shop, noting can the consumers do.

    so just prepare to move along.

    I spend a lot on camera items (10k) but use it when I needed.
