Sony going to abandon DSLR's?

I'm putting on my flame suit already but I had an interesting conversation with one of the senior managers at Jessops a few days ago.

He mentioned that Sony were "not in it for the long run" and that he wouldn't touch any of their new kit for that reason.

I'm not convinced that he was basing this on any specific new information or fact but it was pretty chilling nonetheless..

I was actually there to buy a m4/3 camera and casually mentioned the Sony mirrorless cameras. He matter of factly said that Sony were discontinuing some of their Aplha range and he wouldn't advise anyone to buy Aplha.

This may well be a Jessops standpoint so take it with a ton of salt.

Your thoughts?
