Last night I gave the little lady the the new Nex7 for her b-day present. You should have seen the look on her face.
The initial comment she made was "WOW, is that for me?" I said yes. Then after unboxing she said, "WOW, that is a small camera, but I like my Canon G10". Hmm, I Then responded telling her that it's image quality is quite good, she said, "But I like my Canon". I explained that the Nex7 can produce a shallower DOF than her G10. She said "Thats nice, but I really like my G10, I know how to use it and it works".
At this point I was getting a bit downtrodden. So I added, that there is virtually no shutter delay. Her eyes opened wide and she said "Really?, you mean I can shoot the dogs running and capture the moment?" Yup, I responded. She then thought for a moment holding the Nex7 in her hands, turning it over, looking at it, and asked "Can you order me one of those cool Barton braided leather straps in purple? I said sure...she stood up, pumped her fist and exclaimed "Yes, thank you, I love it!".
Damn, a woman's priorities simply baffle me.........a purple braided leather strap?
