I doubt that Sony would create an entirely new OS for the SLT models, and given how much they have in common (user interface, graphics, etc.), it seems to me that the SLT's OS is more like the a5xx OS modified to work only with live view.

If rumors are true SLT cameras do not use same OS as Axxx so it would be more work than just copy paste.

They don't. But almost all of the work is already done. Even if Sony rewrote everything from scratch for the SLTs and can't be bothered to write new tethering code, they could at least put the functionality into the a5xx cameras so that there's at least something in the range with tethering. It just seems like a huge oversight on their part.

I doubt Sony programmers work for free.
