Sony is expending most of its current energy, time and cost on the E-Mount system. This makes sense in that the E-Mount system does need to be brought up to full potential and soon if Sony wants to stay competitive. That means one, or more, FF E-Mount cameras, more better lenses for E-Mount.

However, another way to look at it is that Sony has not been bringing out any A-Mount camera body replacements other than the a58. An example would be no a79 (not even announced) so far.

The A77 came along years after the A700.  I wouldn't expect a replacement for another year at least.  It was early on the 24MP bandwagon.  Next logical step is a similar camera updated with PDAF-on-sensor, but it needs more than that to differentiate it from the A77.

Don't read too much into the tea leaves.
