Focus Numerique just posted their interview with Sony. Here are some key info:
Sony said they cannot reveal their future plans but they assured that they will keep develpoing both A-mount cameras and A-mount lenses. There are tworeasons why they will keep A-mount: 1) The Sony translucent mirror allows some unique features and 2) A-mount cameras do allow to use a large set lenses (including older Minolta lenses).
Video in E and A-mount:
E-mount is more suited for video because you can use adapters. A-mount is oriented more towards photographers.
Sony fast release cycle:
Sony says that because they are “challengers” they have to innovate faster tostimulate interest in their products.
Sony said they work fine for fixed lens cameras with prime lenses. It’s complicated with zooms.
Sony made a guarantee that they will develop new APS-C E-mount lenses
Compact FF without EVF:
Sony said they have no plan to launch such a camera yet.
