Re: What does A6000 mean for the A77 replacement (good things IMHO)

I see a6000's AF system as a potential game changer for A-mount and in a great way. The key issue will be driving PDAF lenses, which is practically all lenses except the STF (which is MF), to get along with CDAF as well. If Sony has been preparing many of its lenses (new SAM and SSM as well as updates) over last couple of years, chances are these lenses have the dual motor AF which might be the key to taking advantage of focal plane AF.

But what about other lenses? That is where SLT might still find use: stow it away unless the lens works the old fashioned way in which case use SLT to support legacy with old fashioned PDAF (still giving users a choice to go mirrorless if they are okay with slower AF).
