Sonystyle is not exactly the most reliable source to understand if a product has been discontinued or not. Fact is that the Sony A850 is “no longer available” in their store. But as we have seen in the past that could be a temporary status. My trusted sources do still confirm that Sony will put the A850 out of production and lower the price of the A900. The next Sony Full Frame cameras will be announced in 2012.
