I'm not so shure.  The D810 appeals to the professional photographers because of it's ergonomics.  The Sony A series is more menu dependent which turns professionals off.  Also slow AF doesn't help either.  I personally think a camera about the size of the Df is about as small as I want to get.

According to CIPA sales figures, mirrorless cameras are loosing out in the sales market.  Even giants like Panasonic are taking measures to protect themselves from these poor sales figures.  You would think that the Sony A series would up the figures (even with fire sales prices) but that has not shown to be happening yet.  The year's not over so there is still time for sales to recover especially in the important fourth quarter.
