Default Buzz mostly due to lack of info

There'd be a lot less buzz if Sony weren't Missing In Action
on this product introduction. They haven't even posted
a press release acknowledging that the Dark Agony is
now shipping.

We have no day-and-date final reviews of this camera,
so we have to interpret statements and images from
early users. Not much of this info is useful.

The overwhelming impression is that Sony is not exactly
proud of this product. It's beginning to look like my next
camera won't be a DSC-F828.

Default Sony PR still silent on '828, but Canon speaks.

But in what is widely considered to be a putdown of
the DSC-F828, Canon had a press release today that
included this quote attributed to Takashi Oshiyama:
"Those companies out there that have no experience
producing film cameras have yet to create a camera
that performs like a real camera should. I won't say
who that is."

Ouch.

Sony's only press release this week describes
advancements in their humanoid robot, which is not
even a product.
