Probably NOT!!

I think the same site told us the new cameras would have an SLT with 80% light transmission vs the current 70%?  And if you read this.. its about hits.. the actual rumor is a YAWWWN

Breaking News "New camera will have same technology in older cameras like A99 and A7"

The patent is filed. For a mirror-less DSLR format camera. does not mean it is ready to be a product.

SONY as of yet has not made the onsensor PD focus as good as the SLT

HOWEVER  the A99 already has this feature of hybrid focus.. so it isn't even really a rumor that the A77 replacement would probably have it.

SO NO  not DEAD until Sony can do a full a-mount that can AF as fast as the A77.
