A38 dead?
Mar 10, 2013

I searched this forum, as well as the Sony rumor site, and didn't find much. I have an A77, but it's not getting much use because of the portability of my m4/3 system (which favors video). However, my first SLT was an A33, which was small and light enough to carry more often and allowed me to use some of my favorite Sony/Minolta lenses. Despite the poor viewfinder, absence of features I'm used to (viewfinder level, for example), I still might be interested in an update. Being able to throw an A33-sized body into a bag with, say, my 50mm 1.4 and 85mm 2.8 lenses, perhaps the 18-135, wouldn't add much weight. Plus, I still occasionally use my three flashes with my Sony cameras for wireless flash shooting.

Perhaps I'm in a small group, but I really liked the size of my A33. Haven't been as fond of my subsequent A65/77 cameras, despite their being superior tools in almost every aspect.
