I agree. I actually switched from NEX to Fuji X because of my frustrations with the direction Sony was taking with the NEX systems, most particularly the fast prime lenses. And, that they said e-mount would be low end, and A-mount high end, and if NEX shooters wanted better glass, they could always get the SLT adapter and use the A-mount lenses. No, sorry, not what I had in mind. I see people all excited about the 'A" series (way to confuse low-information camera users, Sony!), that they are excited and waiting for the A5000, A7000, and even A9000, and I shake my head. Based on what Sony itself has said, I would think A5000 is as high as it will go, and there won't be another NEX-7, likely? Instead, you will have A-mount mirrorless, starting probably at the 5 or 7 level. Will be interesting to see how it goes.
