I initially bought into this mount in the mid 1980's with Minolta... it survived two major transitions, first to Konica-Minolta, and then to Sony. Here we are 30 freeking years later with several high-end new additions to the line. So,

I know it's easy to get to get on the "sky is falling" rant for the A mount

...really? I just don't understand these assertions. I mean, maybe it's easy for some to get caught up in internet babble, but one has to consider the validity of the source "opinions," the factual past & present, and think for one's self.

there is definitely a lot of uncertainty in the minds of A mount users at the moment even if there is no hard evidence to substantiate people's concerns.

well, other than a few "sky is falling" posts on this forum and SAR (did I mention "consider the source?" yep) I'm not aware of any of that in real life ...and with the 30-year history I've experienced, and the new releases, my biggest uncertainty is where's the best place to put in my pre-order for the 70-400G2 !

With the recent release of the A99 and the A58, and a few lenses one should find evidence that Sony will continue with the A mount.

Exactly; now you're thinkin'!
