Stagnation of New APS-C Models?

I have the Sony NEX-F3 (and Nikon J1). Maybe it's me, but it seems like forever since new models have been announced other than the A3000 and A7/r--the former isn't really what I think of in terms of NEX, the latter are full-frame & as great as smaller full-frame models are, I think I'm one of many that appreciate what APS-C NEX models like the F3, 6 and 7 etc bring in terms of high image quality in a smaller package.

Is it just my imagination? I'm not dis-satisfied with my F3 (other than I wish you could use the command dial to more quickly choose AF points, not just the 4-way part of it) but the lack of new models can sort of send a "vibe" that the system is not likely to still be around in 3-odd years or so, or that it may end up being more like the A3000 which is NOT what I am looking for.

Tips?

You have plenty of vocal companions who keep creating these threads. You start with APSc to complain about only 11 models in 3.5 years that E-mount has been around, and end up with issues with accepting that FF and other body styles also have their place in the market.

Is 4 models for 3-series too few in 3.5 years? Is four models for 5-series too few in 3.5 years? Are people spending a grand or more on NEX-6/7 desperate to seek obsolence of the bodies every year if not less?

And to think that not too long ago the primary complaint was... too many models to keep up.

The polar opposite groups should be locked up in a room, just so the rest of us can be spared with their relentless nagging leaving these forums to constructive criticism, and sharing of photographic experiences.
