Take a look at the Japanese camera sales numbers, as well as amazon sales rankings in the various countries. The Axx cameras are not near the top.
A77 #36
A65 #39

Also, from publicly available data, the DSLT sales aren't that great either. But maybe the cost savings gained from removing the mirror — cheaper, less exacting assembly — allows them a bit more wiggle room. I'm purely guessing here but I suspect the A-mount's days are numbered.

I just repeat what I've said in other threads:

Sony practically halted production of their SLT's for over three months due to the natural disasters in Thailand and Japan. They're just starting now to pick up with the A77/65 and the next will still take maybe another month to reach a sizeable production!

IMHO it's too soon yet to judge Sony SLT cameras sales in relation to the competition, I'd say maybe by May/June we will start having more reallistic statistics.
