I am going to go out on a limb here and predict a massive failure at these prices for these two products. I definitely love the idea of it, but they arent going to sell well at these prices.
It depends what a massive failure is.
Many people said the same thing about the RX1, because of price, it was meant to be a disaster.
I am unsure of sony's economics. But I can repeat what I said when the RX1 came about. It is the first pocketable digital FF camera with such an amazing fixed optics. It is leading the wave while all other makers rest in their laurels. Who else is making anything remotely comparable? In FF? No one. They dominate the market because no other company has the will to be groundbreaking.
Same thing with this camera add-on. Who else in the market makes something remotely similar? No one. Zip, nada, zilch, zero.
Even if it is a massive failure economically, they are setting the road for the future of many electronics. Sure, some other department might be subsidising this, but it is FAR from being a massive failure.
