Sony A77m2 translucent mirror replacement no more available? And discontinued at BestBuy?

Bildschirmfoto 2015-09-13 um 12.07.36

One of our readers noticed that the A77m2 SLT mirror part has been marked as “no longer available” at Andrews Electronic. Not sure though this is just the store that will stop doing the camera reparation or if that it’s a worldwide stop of translucent mirror production.

And Jhonlsu reports:

“Seems that BestBuy won’t carry the A77II in store anymore, citing lackluster sales and discontinuance notice. Available online until stock runs out.”

Joshua:Last summer I got the pleasure of producing a short film shot on the Sony A7S, it was challenging but so much fun. We recently got featured in a blog called “the metropolist” for their top 5 short films of the week and we will premiere in the starting in November. I would love for our film to be featured in your blog to show the production capability of the A7S. Let me know if I can provide anymore information to make this happen.
