Read the entire thread. No one pointed out the obvious - Sony made zero money off of the older Minolta A mount lenses. They needed folks to buy some of their outrageously expensive lenses to maximize profit.

Sony lenses were (are) not expensive, or more expensive than similar lenses from other manufacturers. If you can not afford them, it's a different matter.

And, of course, the missing pride in not having developed something that people really, really liked. That applies to the hinge thingy also. Shame, shame.

Well, Sony developed the E-mount. I think they are proud of that.
