Maybe when Canon finally develops a strong mirrorless contender, Sony's firmware crew will be prompted to act.

The party will be well and truly over for Sony as they've failed to maintain and develop existing products. There is a balance to be struck between planned obsolescence and gaining customer loyalty.

I would swiftly sell off my 5N and 7 bodies when a full featured, extendable , APS-C or larger sensor, high quality body is released that could accommodate my legacy glass.

Why doesn't the 7's pop up flash wirelessly control other flashes? Konica Minolta's 2004 DiMAGE A2 did this. Sony bought Konica Minolta's DSLR division in 2006 and somehow overlooked this feature. Unlikely, isn't it?
