I gambled

I'm betting that Sony will be the first out with a truly modern mirrorless lineup, and that it will support A-mount lenses for at least 5 more years - which is farther into the future than any of us can see in digital photography. Long range I expect the future is E-mount (and likely smaller sensors), but I expect to get my money's worth from my A equipment before the change.

I put my money behind it to the tune of a A99 and a number of Sony and Minolta lenses. But as to 600mm lenses, these are a tiny market and I doubt anyone makes any significant profit from them. If I needed specialty lenses I might well have gone with one of the Big Two. Maybe someday Sony will get there, but they have more important holes to fill first.
