(SR4) Sony increases resources for Alpha development (including hybrid cam).

One of my trusted sources told me that Sony increased the financial resources for the Alpha segment development for the years 2014-2016. Part of the new resources goes to the Hybrid A-E mount Sony camera that is due for a late 2014- early 2015 release.

I should get more info about the hybdrid model soon. Stay tuned on SAR as usual!
