My Sony is still working but not as well as in the beginning. It tales a long time for the lens to retract and occasionally gets stuck and won't trigger. I have to re-start it a lot. In its defense, I used the heck out of that thing. It has been licked by donkeys, pecked by emus, dropped in the dirt, shoved in my purse without a lens cap, etc. Once I got the Canon 5D Mark III I stopped even looking at cameras. In fact, if Michael saw a camera store website pop up in my browsing history he would probably cancel my bank card.
The last time you mentioned getting the new Sony I looked at the website and it did look like they made some good changes. I still love mine for video because of the tracking focus in video mode. The Canon takes great video but anytime the subject moves, you have to refocus. Then of course you have to edit out all the blurry stuff. I probably need to play with it more to get better at it. With the little guys running around your house the tracking focus is definitely a plus. I can't imagine them standing still while you refocus!
