The Sony A68 is an excellent alternative to a mid-range DSLR, offering the same excellent auto-focusing performance as the top-of-the-range A77 II camera. In summary, the Sony A68 proves that there’s still life left in the Sony A-mount camera range. It’s both a worthy alternative to the DSLR competition and Sony’s smaller-bodied E-mount system.

The Alpa is the only mirrorless camera which uses the new Sony 101 medium format sensor. But unlike modern DSLR digital medium format cameras the Alpa is quite tricky to use. Kai surely got though a lot of annoyances to make it work. It would certainly make sense for Sony to launch a RX medium format camera with such sensor. If they manage to price it below $10,000 there may a market for this?
