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.

For those with an A77 already its not a great motivator to move, for those on lower spec it may be and for those that are not Sony already it may also be.

interesting take.. but WRONG

Don't Panic!.. these are just opinions... go take some pictures..

We differ, shall we say in our conclusions. I'll go by your tag line, "in your opinion, I'm wrong".

But economics are on my side.. as in they spent real R&D money on a part of the system they don't get value for in e-mount.. Actually increased the value of a-mount over e-mount.

Now we have:

  • Better AF than LEA4
  • Stabilized viewfinder on ALL lenses.
  • Fast zooms

All now a-mount only feature for Sony.

e-mount is back to:

  • Smaller
  • Cheaper
