Re: uh oh, no A7000...?

I don't think it is as much planned obsolescence as it is expected obsolescence given that mirror less technology has a way to go before maturity.

Assuming that the AF system in a6000 works as advertised and keeps up in low light conditions, I would expect to see Sony put it on a FF camera, not below or as a replacement to a7 but above it (a8 or a9). A lesser model may arrive but when a7 too is ready for an update. I don't think Sony would like to make a7 obsolete prematurely unless they have sold a vast majority of units they planned/manufactured.

As far as SAR's prediction goes, I suspect the conversation went like this:
Q: So, how about a7000?
A: Sony is planning on another FE body right now. It will be the flagship.

Posted on SAR: no a7000. Sony is committed to FE bodies.
