When I read the press releases regarding the new SEL70300G, I can only feel more rejected by Sony.
I own a Sony A77V Mk1 and have spent many thousands of dollars in genuine Zeiss and Sony A mount full frame lenses with the longer term intent on "upgrading" from APS-C to Full Frame sensor body of the A99 mk2.
But All I see is more and more FE mount lenses being produced and no information on any new A mount full frame body.
To say I am really frustrated is a serious understatement. I am so frustrated that I could burst forth with language so "colorful" that I would be banned from this excellent forum.
Sony's silence is more telling than anything else.
I purchased my A77 when it first came out and it is nearing its "end of life" as I enjoy time lapse photography among other forms of photography.
I do not believe the existing A mount Sony user base should be treated with so much contempt and disregard.
I put a serious question to you Sony.
If you wanted a new product to satisfy your needs, how long would you wait before you looked elsewhere?
I believe the Sony A mount user base has waited long enough. In fact more than long enough.
Isn't it true?
You are telling us nothing because you have nothing to tell.
Actually you could tell us the truth.
No, you are not developing a new version of the A99, you are putting all your eggs into the E mount and specifically the FE full frame body and lenses.
You are leaving the PRO market to Canon and Nikon.
Obviously Sony only wants to be number 3 in the photography market
I would appreciate a formal reply from Sony and not continuing silence.
Apologies to those who are offended by my frustration. Actually it is Sony who should be apologizing.
