Who said it wont be supported???? wtf is this coming from? haha they simply rebranded the NEX to Alpha... they will still release new e mount lenses.... just no successor to the NEX 7... not sure what the problem is.... Also keep in mind SIGMA makes some GREAT e mount lenses. Iv owned a few and they were great.

There are a lot more companies that make e mount lenses then x mount...Rokinon, Sigma, Sony, Zeiss, Tamron, there about 80 lenses to choose from and more will come out.... not sure what you guys are even talking about? not supported? lol ...

Really, what makes you guys think it E mount wont be supported for many many years to come, explain?

E-mount will be supported....but ask yourself this?

Why does Sony keep releasing new APS-C mirrorless cameras, yet no roadmap for pro-grade future E-mount lenses?

The Zeiss 16-70 F4 is $1000, with mixed reviews. Price does not justify it's performance.

The Zeiss Touit's are F1.8 and extremely over-priced.

The Zeiss 24 F1.8 is $1000, while Fuji has F1.4 lenses for less, and now even a fast F1.2.

Where are the weather-sealed APS-C bodies and lenses?

It is clear that Sony is focusing more on Full Frame mirrorless now.

You know you can use the excellent FE mount lenses on any E mount camera right? With amazing results.. just like Canon and NIkon .... they have APC lenses and Pro grade FF lenses (that people use for both APSC and FF cameras)

Why make a pro grade lens for ONLY apsc when you can make it for FF and people can use it on both systems??????

Because if you make the lens for both APS-C AND FF it will be BIG.  Part of the allure of a COMPACT System Camera is the small diminutive size.  I dare say, I surely don't want to hang a 70-200 f/2.8 FF Nikkor off of my X-E1 - that's what my D300 is for.  The value prop for CSC is high performance AND small.
