Welcome to the wonderful world of A-mount! Since Sony took over from Minolta in 2006 there has been a huge amount of FUD stating that Sony is about to pull the plug. Some people feel that Sony have "betrayed" them as the latest cameras are not Minolta clones and are very bitter about it.

Reality is Sony have saved the system and have made huge strides over the years. Sony are now the acknowledged leader in sensor technology. Sony now have highly advanced cameras, with feature sets no other camera makers have. I have every confidence that the A-mount is here to stay, despite thwashers of the gloom and doom merchants.
