For all the complaints we see here, I have to ask, are any of us the key audience for this product? At this price level, they're not targeting the impulse buyer but someone who knows what they want, and if this fits the description, I'm sure it'll sell enough to make them happy. I do wonder, how many higher end cameras (let's say full frame and above, although some arbitrary price limit might be a better classifier) are bought by enthusiasts/amateurs vs. semi-pros and pros?
I'm pretty sure that the vast majority of the buyers will be amateurs/enthusiasts.
If I had to guess I'd bet on a 10:1 ratio amateurs vs professionals
