This is rare. No commentary or discussion on an Axis article. Take a look at the long string of comments on the lower cost M Series article.

Does this mean nobody here cares much about multisensor cameras?

Minidomes are used 10x or 20x more than multisensor cameras, so that is certainly one reason. And, as for multisensor cameras, there is nothing outrageously groundbreaking nor terrible about this, so it is hard for people to have a strong opinion.
