These A5x series ones, might do pretty well for Sony users, but is there any reason a buyer who has no investment in a system would consider them over the numerous rivals models out there? Probably not.

Worse, they don't listen to users either. They take a very simplistic view of buyers, all entry buyers are p&s upgraders..well no that is wrong, they need new people with vision at Sony. The current team does not cut it IMO

Sure FF would be great, might be dead happy, but it's out of my budget by far. If Sony are saying anything A5xx series is consumer, and it appears that, what point sticking around? I could get an A700, but the situation remains, a 2 tier system..and long term that will not appeal.
If I reach the point I feel Sony have so little in common with Minolta (Design, ergo, spec and ideas etc) Might as well not be using them! I already feel they have downgraded lower to mid point machines, entry level is ruined..mid point is downgraded. No point complaining all the time, might as well take some action at some point
