My main complaint is not about Sonys roadmap. Its how long it takes for everyone else than Sony to join the game. I honestly don´t believe it takes Sigma that long to construct a new lens. I think its more of a marketing choice, like many have said here.

Given the fact that nobody has even announced anything within the FE range, makes me wonder if theres any FE lenses coming at all this year from other than Zeiss/Sony.

And just on a sidenote:

To me these are the traits that are far more than an amateur photographer needs, and that shows the A7/A7R are pro cameras:

- Full format

- External flash mount

- Weather sealed magnesium construction

- High ISO capability

- Microphone output

- Both LCD screen and electronic viewfinder.

- Manual dials for full control

- Heavy customization features

- Prime lenses the norm

- Vertical battery grip at launch

- HDMI output

I could go on. But these are stuff the professional photographers, such as myself, actually need and use on a regular basis. That amateur photographers perhaps dont ever use or need. I mean, people are making photo albums with pictures from their iPhones these days. Even the NEX is advanced for amateurs.
