I am guessing that the project to further develop faster AF for upper-end Sony MILC cameras was nor developed sufficiently in time for the A7 projects (which were very rushed onto the market.) Maybe fast AF will arrive incuded with the NEX-7 replacement.

Odds are good, they seem unconcerned with cannibalizing their own SLR sales - compare to the EOS-M. It makes sense that the A7s exist simply to test the market and establish  MILC FF without blowing the R&D budget or rousing the sleeping giants (Canon, Nikon) into action.

... gets them started on building a system. With couple if entry level FF cameras in place, Sony can build lens lineup, while prioritizing A-mount for performance. And eventually a9.

Even on A-mount we may be looking at a revised lens lineup. So, SLT may not be going anywhere, ratger mirrorless may be an added feature with A-mount lenses revised to support both.

And E-mount gets only the mirrorless treatment.
