I think that you are reading too much into what I am saying, I'm not griping, It's my observation and what I expected was a new generation Camera like the transition from A700 to A77, but what came out was an A77'. For the delay in its release it was not a quantum release, it's a gap filler. It tells me that the A mount is not the focus of their research and perhaps a scale back in development funding within Sony.

From the A700 to the A77 there were major advances in technology. I can't see that happening again for some time because Digital Photography tech has matured to a point where there is little in practical advances that can be made. The days of big technical jumps in cameras is over for the time being and the best you can expect are incremental improvements.

Miss use of the ability to do 100% pixel peeping is the bane of digital photography because it causes people to fret over inconsequential issues.
