I must be the only one who doesn't think the fixed mirror Axx cams were a good idea - yes they AF videos better than the CD-AF cams like the GH1 and NEX but the price for that is enormous from what I can tell (not least the overheating) .

I think PDAF on sensor is where it's headed, and aside from the loss of the OVF, will be a much better solution.

I love the features enabled by the SLT design, but am not comfortable with the idea of giving up the DSLR in favor of it ... I'd use a $650 body for fun, but would want to see if the mirror accumulates dust or builds up a haze over time before wanting it to be my main camera.

I think the cameras in and of themselves are fine; if Sony is going whole hog SLT in the APS-C line, I really hope they know what they're doing.
