Re: A mount going forward?

Based on comments by Sony, I feel very confident that we will continue to see A mount bodies. I suspect the next iterations will forgo the SLT mirror and simply use the newer sensors from E mount bodies. The real area of concern are lenses, specifically the loss of third party lens support. With Tamron and Sigma no longer making A mount lenses, you have to be sure that you will be satisfied with the current lens eco system. Sony has not introduced or meaningfully updated its A mount lens lineup in years and they have repeatedly stated they don't believe the lens eco system needs updating, so I don't expect to see any new Sony A mount lenses for at least a few more years if ever.
