I was in a similar situation awhile back. What I really wanted was an updated A58. Instead, the A58 was release. It's a heck of a deal for $380 shipped (deals a few months ago), but it lacks things that I want. I also didn't like the fact that it was a "tweener" with obvious cost cutting.

With that, I sold the remainder of the A Mount lenses and will consider other options for the time being.

With all the weight they're throwing into E mount, I decided that, that I do not like the direction they're moving. Especially when E mount ergonomics are still extremely poor, have poor battery life, and overpriced lenses.

Odd you are in the market for a discount DSLR level camera .. but the fact that e-mount lenses (that cost less than A-mount) still is "over priced"  What where you going to buy for the A-mount?

Lets hope they release some A Mount stuff next month, but I don't have my hopes up anymore.
