You can't be so dismissive of an official statement and expect people to believe your baseless speculation. The above post of yours isn't a well thought out argument or looking at it with a "critical view". It's not even a sensible opinion as those have to have something to back them up.

Sony have said what they are going to do. You have chosen not to believe them but for no good reason.

We have chosen to be skeptics on Sony's saying what they are going to do, official or not. Because they so often have done far less than they said they were going to do. Or in doing what they say they compromise some other part of their photography gear's capability. Or do the exact opposite of what they say.

There is very good reason for this, we have experienced Sony behaviour over considerable time. What they do is real, their talk is not. They have built up a considerable pattern of behavior, that's quite real.

You are talking those previous comments of mine out of context but snipping the rest of the post.

What I am objecting to is the false logic and pure conjecture used to try to justify a position that says Sony won't continue the A-mount.

If you want to think Sony will break the promise to continue the a-mount simply because other promises have been broken in your opinion, that is up to you.

However there are a pile of straw man arguments being constructed to suggest Sony won't continue with the A mount such as saying the A3000 or the release of several e-mount lenses must equal the end of the a-mount.

It is impossible to draw  any such conclusion yet despite the statement from Sony about the a-mounts future people read it,ignore it and then re-post the same stupid arguments!
