but this reply to Mike on a DSLR/gen cam forum doesn't make sense???????
What makes you think Mike is trying to mislead that the cameras are the SAME besides the sensor,
which IMO is more important than 'everything else' especially when there is a price difference (context of the DSLR forum section) $3k v $7k, not to mention ability to use as a normal camera.
Just because you don't find his sensor sharing devices chart helpful doesn't make it not helpful to others,
therefore your post violates your own requirement.
If everything else is the same why bother paying $7k for the camera when you can get "the same image quality" from a $3k camera? But yet, there is a difference, and people still buy the more expensive camera.
I am not disagreeing with you about the usefulness of having a daytime/dual-purpose camera or that these are not great cameras, because they are.
I didnt see his post as only a sensor level comparison so I guess I took it out of context...my bad.
