What could they realistically do for a 7-replacement right now? Weather sealing?

what can they do???

  • [a] tighten up their OSPDAF routines,
  • and [b] beef them up such that the N7 mk-II would be capable to capture even most ambitious of dynamic action shooting/tracking
  • very unlikely, though - alas!!


Focal plane PDAF will take its time to mature and be a full replacement for mirrors. Until then, mirror remains your solution.

And If it were to take couple of years, what would be your take if Sony chooses to keep NEX-7 replacement out until then? A more realistic approach would be, as I have suggested previously, offer a two pronged approach via 6 series as Sony has done with 7: A6 w/OSPDAF and 20mp (NEX-6 replacement) and A6r without AA and 24 MP (NEX-7 replacement) while still being under A7 in terms of pricing. Would that be a bad idea?
