I agree a camera marketed for Facebook feels like a dark day in photography as I own a Canon 40D and a +$1000 lens to go with it. There's some amazing things you can do with a pair like that.
BUT I'd be stupid to think that there are not inexperienced photographers out there that just want a point and shoot and not the complicated set of controls an all out SLR brings. In fact if you don't know what you're doing with a high end SLR, it's quite possible to shoot worse photos. I know because I did that initially with my new SLR!
So there's a market from everything is the reality now and what seems to be a piece of junk for me may be actually a gem for others. :)
