At the price points, people will accept that consumer-prosumer gear will not perform at the level of a Panavision Genesis. However people also like to be able to make informed decisions.
Bob,

of course Sony should have put a warning about that, or even a better idea, not use that technology at all. Rolling shutter is annoying as well, but sometimes there are ways to avoid its side effects (although beats me why they moved away from CCDs). With this, you're screwed, unless you never blink (in which case you wouldn't be human) and you never pan or tilt the camera.

That's my biggest problem there. If this was a defect inherent to consumer and prosumer gear, I wouldn't be so upset, but I haven't seen this in my entire life even in the cheapest consumer MiniDV camcorders that you buy at Walmart, or even in my Panasonic HMC40, which you would say it's a prosumer camera. So why would Sony use this obviously bad technology when there are other technologies to use in viewfinders that wouldn't cause a problem to anybody whatsoever?
