Quote:I mean that stupid flash mount for instance - WHY?

A hangover from the Konica/Minolta buyout. but the thinking was this:
It mounts a lot easier (no thumbwheel to tighten, just a release button to press when you want to remove it).
It's supposed to be more stable than the standard mount.
It's designed so that if you drop camera & flash, the mount snaps off the less expensive flash, rather than the more expensive camera.

I dont think this will be coming out any time soon as Sony recently released their cyber-shot 3d Cyber-Shot 3D (3D camera) range and therefore will spend the bulk of their time pushing their 3D cameras. Who knows, only time will tell.
