How can folks think that the A3000 is in any way shape or form a DSLR. Or that something mirrorless can even be a DSLR. It's a different design entirely from a DSLR, but apparently all folks believe the most desirable camera is a DSLR, thus whatever it is they keep wanting to call it a DSLR.


If the next step is PDAF-on-sensor (already patented), and if this design will equal the efficiency of the SLT, I'm afraid that, the factory production cost, could prevail in this équation! Because the result and benefit is decreasing noise ratio (from images then EVF at the same time!).

If DSLR is believed to be the most desirable, make a true DSLR, sales will be better for that. You won't be trying to sell a lie.

You want a different camera design, nothing wrong with it, but stop pretending it's something it most definitely is not. Give it a different and appropriate name. Mirrorless is not appropriate for anything as it does not give a hint what's in the camera and how it works. It stands for nothing. Or maybe a Box Brownie.

Look at what's inside a camera and how it functions as that is what says what it can and cannot do.

The A3000 is a NEX E mount camera with different decoration on the outside. Or it imitates Sony's HX300 Cybershot Bridge camera in a lot of it's programming and function, because it certainly does that. DSLR is taken, find a different name. Maybe the A3000 can find a market, but it should be a honest one.
