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

They have too many screw driven lenses in their line up, fundamental lenses, that would inhibit doing away with the in body motor, for now.

Unlikely Sony would (that was my point). Sony has kept screw drive support even on SLT adapters for E-mount.

The key issue would be how these lenses can work with hybrid set up. The screw drive motor can be designed to address that issue but considering a mechanical linkage between the lens and body, CDAF could be a more challenging task to handle. Interestigly enough, Sony did leave screw drive support out of mirrorless adapters.

Besides, if screw drive lenses are to be supported, older SAM, SSM, USD, HSM etc might as well. And they may require SLT to be there. Stow away SLT could address that considering Sony has patented that couple of years ago. A "ready" lens would go mirrorless. The beercan or Minolta 70-200/2.8 SSM might need SLT to be down.
