There are people struggling to put food on their table, so people speculating/complaining about the future of their camera gear is getting a little obnoxious. Furthermore, camera gear should never be thought of as an "investment", and those that do are foolish with their money -- it's a consumable, in relative terms.

BTW, this is coming from someone who has a lot of money wrapped up (not invested) in the A-Mount system. Basically, that just means I have a lot off cool gear to shoot with right now.

If this is how you feel you're kind of hanging around in/on the wrong forums aren't you ? This is a gear forum and as such folks will agonise about these things. I agree materialism like this can be crass but preaching morals to posters is equally obnoxious.

Once again, spare me. It would be one thing if this was only one of only few threads on the matter, but instead, it's probably one of the most talk about subjects on this forum -- at this point, it's a "dead horse".

Why don't you ask yourself what is more likely to ensure the success of the A-Mount system -- People coming onto the forum seeing tons of topics about the impending doom of the system, or instead, people showing off great photos and discussing what features they love/don't love  and what they hope to see in future models.

Or as a third alternative, don't ask yourself anything and just go out and enjoy the gear you have. As your signature says, "I shall focus with photographs".
