Go and read Thom Hogan’s article about Sony influencers, clickbait, and “the crowned king of footnotes” (spoiler: it’s Sony)

I have always said that Thom Hogan is not a good source for upcoming products/specs/rumors (even though he wants to think otherwise), but his industry commentary is one of the best I have seen online. Go and read his article about Sony influencers, clickbait, and “the crowned king of footnotes” (spoiler: it’s Sony). Here is a quote from the article:

“One (now) Sony user who’s a key influencer went so far as to posit that Nikon was lying about how sticky the focus system was because the displays in the teaser videos had to be faked. Faked or not, how sticky and how good the focus system is can only be ascertained by testing, not by confirmation bias guessing. Given that this particular influencer has long criticized the Z System focus abilities—despite the fact that the Z6 II was arguably better than the A7 Mark III at the time he made some of those remarks—his recent comments seemed like a desperate attempt to validate his deteriorating viewpoint. Or as it is called: click bait.”
