Sony is shrinking its A-Mount SLT product line-up down to the a58 and if you believe the rumors and a78 and the current so called flagship a99.

A smart move for a company that needs to check each and every expense.

When the SLT first started a few years back Sony marketed a traditional lineup of series 3x, 5x, 6x, 7x and this year a9x products.

Which at the time made sense as better features around the same or similar sensor still was worth different money then. Today that is no longer the case. The A37 is so capable it's comparatively underpriced and the main differentiators of the A77 apart from weather proofing is software differences. There is no longer a different, more expensive, silicon chain after the sensor on higher priced models.

The SLT is a dead-end for Sony

Just as the SLR is a dead-end for Canikon. Not news, not profound, and brings nothing to the table to discuss.

The big question is what’s next for the A-Mount?

The A58, the A78 and the A99. You even listed that at the start.

Rumor is that the future is as only adaptor to the E-Mount NEX product that Sony is selling.

Rumor is that you have no idea of what you speak.
