Is that so?

Story#1 Sony Cancels the Alpha A3xx line(amount).
Story#2 Sony introduces the Alpha A3000(emount)

And Jespers point is laughable. The Amount isnt a "mainstream bestseller". Nor is the Amount the Low Profit product that is racking in big bucks for Sony.

Correct. That is the E mount. The A mount is the high margin halo product.

That doesn't make either of them endangered.


You guys are moving on tangents.  Back to the original Question.  Why would a company kill a "low profit" line, when that line is making a profit?

The example with the store is just one of infinite examples of why you kill of a profitable product.  It all boils down to, if you can make more money by moving your resources elsewhere... then you do it.
