"DEATH OF A-MOUNT" MASTER THREAD, or "How I learned to start worrying and stop taking pictures!"

Before starting yet another incessant new "IS THE A-MOUNT DEAD?" (ad nauseum) thread, you might want to look here first.  These threads contain many of the endless speculative answers to much of the endless speculative questions necessary to satisfy the doom and gloom appetite of even the most pessimistic Sony critic, which could date back as far as the 1980's when the photography gods and masterminds boldly and confidently predicted that the A-mount would fail miserably then too, because obviously (paraphrasing) "no self respecting pro photographer would be caught dead using autofocus".

Please note, that if you generally consider yourself a person of positive disposition, whose world doesn't revolve around what brand name is on your camera gear and just love taking photos without worrying about decisions that big multinational corporate entities make, and other things in life that you can't control, you may not want to go any further.  The trolls hand wringers are extremely capable of bringing even the most jolly, positive photographer down into the murky negative abyss with them.

Is A mount Sony's Titanic?

How healthy is A-mount?

Is this Sony's plan?

Is SLT dead or alive?

Moody's opinion on Sony!

Do people even consider Sony?

A-mount SAR rumors

Many threads threads you read don't start out as "Death of A-Mount" oriented; it's just that many devolve into that.  Please note that this list is by no means meant to be comprehensive, just a tiny sampling of some of the negative on Sony PMS that forum members have endured just in the last week or so.

Happy to provide this public service.  Thread may be updated as necessary... if there's any point to it.  Or then again, maybe not.
