Why is Sony fully committed to mirrorless? Because they couldn't compete with Canon (and Nikon) in the dSLR segment. What do you supply will happen with Sony — acompany with a long and inglorious history of bailing out where they can't compete — if/when Canon does go 'all in' on mirrorless?
This, actually, would be my #1 reason to NOT invest heavily in Sony camera gear. Even putting aside other markets -- like PCs -- all you have to do is look as far back as their DSLRs. Great support for those now, right?
It's not that I would never buy a Sony, or Sony products. It's just that I'd definitely think twice, and I would be more reluctant to invest heavily in the system, since they're obviously not afraid to drop support of existing product in the name of innovation.
