There was only One Titanic... there are hundreds of thousands of A mount users and gear out there. I dont think they are about to bail on all those that represent brand loyalty.

They bailed on a700 and a900. It would be more a case of another repeat rather than a first time. Brand loyalty buys you nothing with Sony.

...sorry Walt, but the topic of this thread is A-mount, not your well-documented preference OVF/flipping mirror. The OP actually stated"I don't care if the future A mount bodies have the translucent mirror or not."

Over the years you've made your lack of acceptance of SLT/EVF as a technological improvement well known. It's your opinion and you're entitled to it, I respect that, but it is irrelevant in regards to the OP reference to "A mount."

Sony moved on from a700 & a850/900 to a65/77 & a99 with the A mount intact. Every new camera model has a life span; each life span ends. To say "they bailed" on a particular model could be applied to every model ever made by every manufacturer, and only confuses the issue regarding the viability of an entire lens mount that has been in production for decades.
