Entertaining article on Petapixel

Saying you chose FF mirrorless because of the size advantage so you can shoot with an adapted Canon lens is like saying that you’re going on a holiday to Hawaii so you can enjoy skiing on powder snow.
SONYs fatal mistake

Thank you. But worth reading the rebuttal which is linked at the end of the article, as well.

All of which avoids the truth. We buy cameras because they are "sexy" and hence appeal to us emotionally and hence irrationally. Which is why the marketing guys have a key say in camera company marketing campaigns, not the engineers who made the gear. And, of course I am just as bad as everyone else. :^)

Funny. I want a FF Sony mirrorless for precisely that reason. I have a stable of fast Canon FL glass and I'd like to use it digitally without cropping. Snow skiing in Hawaii? Whatever. My money, my choice.

As to sexy cameras, not my thing. I own Pentax DSLR cameras because much careful research led me to them. I want the Sony because it does exactly what I want it for. They're not the normal choice of the oh-so-trendy crowd and I couldn't be gladder of that, either.

Weakly presented argument, and most points are easily debunked. But that's the nature of blog posts (and other cultural phenomena, for that matter) these days. Controversy generates traffic; not accuracy.

Exactly. Although its not a FF, I bought my Sony specifically to use with my Nikon RF lenses. If it weren't for my adapters, I'd never have even considered the camera. The EVF is tiny and fiddly, battery life is embarrassingly small, and the menu is far from intuitive. But its fun to see crisp and clear Raw images for the first time, from my RF lenses! Size and IBIS and whatever else that article was about don't interest me.
