Some hope for A7 1st gen FW upgrade
3

I saw this post in the A6000 forum

https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/62449433

and wrote the comment reported below. It might interest other A7 1st gen owners too, and in general those who care about how a Camera manufacturer supports their products and the environment.

I own the A7 which is an older Camera like A6000 with an older firmware apparently abandoned by Sony (last update 2016).

I'm glad to see that Sony is still maintaining old products firmware, especially on AF.
I'd like to know more details from you A6000 users to understand if there is any hope they might upgrade also the A7 FW too.
It is a shame that a camera technically able to do fast AF with adapted lenses remains crippled because Sony doesn't bother to upgrade the firmware.

Firmware upgrade is also an environment friendly choice. Let's stop the insanity that for every new feature or fix a new camera body must be created.
