So perhaps Barry and like-minded persons can breathe a sight of relief just at the moment. You never know with Sony though. Somebody suggested that the APS-C SLT replacements will be driven by getting the new flash mount on all current Alpha cameras and probably also access to apps. Funny he should emphasize just a RUMOUR when he made it SR5 and used to brag afterwards about the accuracy of his SR5 rumours.Yesterdays rumor about the Full Frame NEX created some buzz about the A-mount future. Some do believe that this may be the end of the A-mount. So let’s get through that:
1) First, this is a rumor site, so never I repeat NEVER(!) accept my info as 100% sure facts.
2) I never wrote A-mount is dead. The only thing I wrote is that Sony is speeding up the NEX FF project and that there will be no SLT FF in 2013. Again, this is a rumor. It may be that Sony will release an SLT FF in 2014. But I have no info about the 2014 strategy.
3) Focus on my A-mount rumors: As I told you there will be at least four new A-mount lenses within the next 6 months, there will be 2 or even three new A-mount ASP-C SLT cameras. That sounds damn good to me!
4) The NEX FF I heard about has 100% support for all A-mount lenses. Which means that AF speed will be as fast as it gets, like on current A-mount cameras. I would have no doubt buying A-mount lenses. Especially an upcoming lens like the superb 50mm f/1.4 Zeiss!

They should have brought out an affordable entry to mid range body with better ergonomics than the OM-D. Its not as good to hold and use as the current bunch of DSLR's and its retro styling is lost on any one who was not around in the 35-mm days.
