Sony might have a plan for the future, but its not apparent. Yet another new series of lenses, and it will take years before they are all available. There seems little point in getting a small camera and huge lenses, FF lenses do not get smaller just because the body does. You'll have to buy the dead end A series lenses if you want a workable system. Those who bought into Sony's A system are not left high and dry, as Sony has apparently abandoned it. That's what they are known for, drop a product line and expect customers to run out and drop another $20K on the newest thing. The NEX system will be going soon.
That's why pro's have kept away from Sony. 2-3 month turnaround for repairs, and they drop their product lines at any time.
I can't bring myself to fall for their tricks, I've seen it happen over and over with their products for the last 50 years. They can make good products, but they can't stick with them.
Changes can be bad or good. It's a risk that most of us will have to take in our life.
But "doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results" is not for me.
I just saw this from Viggo.
