Who the hell says that any market needs "saving"?
Who the hell said that?
The tone of your posts infer that the DSLR market cannot be saved, while claiming that Canon/Nikon AF "lens value will drop like a rock". And you "doubt big DSLR Manual lens [sic] can keep their value".
Which is all well and good to profess your faith in. But so what? Nothing stays the same for long, and in viewing it so starkly I think you are missing the point of the market moving towards something more amorphous and less defined by specific segments, types or systems. So again, does anything need "saving", or conversely if viewed from the other side of the fence (presumably your yard) does a certain market need to die?
Systems and markets evolve. Phrases such as "formal death judgment day" and "take over" or " save the whole DSLR section" are sensationalist hyperbole.
Evolve to what? I miss your point if there is any?
Evolution is self-evident, which is the point I make above and re-state here, as well as my comment about exagerrated descriptions. What's to miss?
And what of it? Use what you own, own what you use and don't bother thinking about perceived or inherent value.
It is a 'prediction' as title implied. Who the hell said people are Even with that in mind, what is wrong? Did I force you bother think of that?
Zhangyue, of course I have read the title and understand your explicit meaning. But you're also of the heavily implicit stance that dollar values tied to gear are changing, and seem a little smug about it. Your inference is there for all to see, as you talked about value in both 35mm format AF lenses, and undefined medifum format lens systems, as well as 35mm (full-frame) digital bodies.
I don't see it in terms of black or white, so there is not right nor wrong to this thread. I am not bothered thinking about it nor obliged in any way.
I'm of the opinion, that though it happens in slow motion, the real disturbance that rearranges things, is the one you never see coming. Let it come, and in the meantime:
'What' happened in slow motion? if you mean mirrorless, I see nothing conflict between us, why argue.
I have no comment.
Shoot, don't speculate.
There are image threads, nobody stop you shooting. This is discuss thread with name 'prediction' and 'discuss'. Why can't I speculate?
I believe you have misunderstood the use of "speculate" here, as I am speaking from the economic standpoint.
