So why did Sony decide to develop a whole new mount for NEX?

Potentially zillions of reasons, the most poignant being that you DO NOT want a mechanically compatible mount for a decidedly incompatible lens.

If this is really your argument, do you also think the 4/3 mount is obsolete? After all, Oly/Pana made a completely different mount for micro four thirds.

Now tell us in which ways the A mount is limited. In your answer, please discuss the major technological changes in the mount since 1985.
