Today on DPREVIEW, there are teases from Apple, DJI, Sony and Sigma!!! Enough is enough, I say! Either announce a product openly or don’t say anything at all is what I feel.

It's all they have, since virtually nobody can deliver anything at even fractional levels of the demand on virtually any product... But yes, I agree.

You should see the bicycle industry, they are now introducing all the 2022 models never having delivered any 2021 models that were announced a year ago and still working on 2020 model delivery for at least another year. A combination of extraordinary demand due to the pandemic and the two major drivetrain manufacturers simply not being able to deliver components at even 25% of demanded volumes/

I'm afraid that's all they can do, a slumping industry and unable to get parts, that's the best they can do, but I'm tired of it as well. I'm also tired of photo articles about twenty-year-old cameras and such too. lol

I agree it is a little annoying but it is also a heads up and can stop you ordering something only to find Sony offer something better .

Unicycle parts are hard to come by too. I can't wait to get a new tire for my 29" muni which has barely anything left on it. Very frustrating!

My mommy taught me that teasing isn't nice.

Teasers are what the marketing departments resort to when they're late to the market and they're desperate to slow the defections to other brands.
