Re: No Sony SLRs - they might want to reconsider...

With the issue of the A99, it now clear that the prediction was right: Sony will not issue a SLR with an OVF any more, ever. Not even for full frame cameras.

If pre-orders are anything to go by, the OVF D600 is currently at #1 on Amazon’s sales ranking and the A99 way down at #96. The D800 – which has been out for months – is currently at #28. A77 is nowhere on the list.

I guess SLT technology and EVFs are not exactly catching on like wildfire yet. If I were Sony I would not completely rule out a full frame camera with an OVF just yet. Not unless they plan to completely abandon the A-mount if the SLT strategy fails.
