Can an a98.6 be far behind?
Sep 13, 2012

Soon after Sony launched their original FF a900 flagship the a850 appeared. A somewhat less loaded DSLR but with the same sensor and image processing. At the time the a900 came in at $3K. The a850 a Lincoln shy of $2K (at $1995).

I wonder if Sony may repeat this with a more 'normally' priced (and hence why I called it the a98.6 in the thread heading) DSLR at around $1799 with a somewhat reduced feature set. Perhaps in a a57 body with a not so articulating screen. (I, for one, would snap it up in a heartbeat.)

And I also wonder if this has crossed the minds of anyone else out there.
Life is an infinite series of moments called now. My job is to capture them.
