I'd think there's still some life in the A mount since Hasselblad has coming on board with the high end FF cameras.

Exactly... I am not looking to upgrade bodies for quite some time, very comfortable with my current system, but thinking "outside of the box," you bring up an excellent point. Heck, worst case scenario (if the sky really does fall as the gloom/doomers predict), is it really that painful to use an adapter with a mirrorless E-mount (especially a future model, as current introductory models will certainly be improved upon), or even a move to Hasselblad for a future FF step up, and keep using all that great Minolta & Sony G/CZ A-mount glass that many of us have invested in over the years?

The future can be full of opportunity ... depends if one's glass is half full, or half empty.
