Thank you for the review.   I know you day to "get over it" when it comes to dust but there are limits.  I think this sounds like a great idea for photographers that shoot mostly indoors in relatively clean and controlled environments. I shoot mostly outdoors, I hike and shoot birds, wildlife and landscapes.  The problem is that with the flipper top side that is open, dust and debris will accumulate and this will be deposited in the lens that is swapped out.  Perhaps this can be ameliorated by putting a rear lens cap on the top side, but this adds another step in the lens changing process.  Generally for the outdoors crowd changing lenses is not very practical.  For indoors work, such as studio and weddings etc, it looks like a great idea.

no no, I wasnt saying that to you specifically. Just a general statement! A zoom lens can get dust and dirt just by zooming lol Its never a win win

Its an informative video, also the book is good, but my take is a bit different, and will likely be unpopular.  I can only comment on the Sony a77 M2 and the A6000 focus modes as I have not worked with other cameras.  It would not surprise me if the other makes suffer from the same shortfalls.  All these focus modes are all just based on best guesses.  This very evident in the AF mode expand spot where the focus squares just dance around the screen.  This may get you an "OK" shot in a pinch which is probably OK for a family album, but it will not get you that quality sharpness - unless you get lucky.  So it is possible to use the machine gun approach:  most shots will miss but I shoot so many that maybe at least 1 or 2 hit.  I used the 35mm SAM on the A77ii and the 24mm Zeiss on the a6000.  On both kits the only satisfactory results are using DMF.  Because "good enough" really is not.
