Hi All has the A99 not pointed the way forward SLR type body with A-mount but more focus points built into the sensor.

There was supposed to be a replacement to the A77 but after comments made re the A58 may be Sony stopped that to concentrate on the next step in camera design.

Although NEX cameras are good the shape does not appeal to me and probably lots of others so a mirror less APS-C and FF may not be far away?

After all Fuji did this

What ever happens it will be interesting!!!

IMO, rumors are being taken too seriously and worse, in a completely different way. But then, it is only a matter of time before mirror is rendered a moot point in a camera... DSLR and DSLT alike. It is bound to happen. Whether it is as early as 2014? I find that hard to believe. It will take an impressive ground-breaking effort to break the mold.

And even as we bid goodbye to mirrors based AF system, with Sony A-mount, we will see a continued A-mount and E-mount duo in the foreseeable future.
