It’s sad to see friends mistreated. They thought they were still together, but we knew that Sony was already gone. The A mount bodies Sony makes are now officially discontinued on the US site.
Sony employed the Samsung school of product evolution, where when the manufacturer decides it is no longer profitable to continue making a certain product line, they leave the lights on and buy a bus ticket. If you look closely at the bus platform, you’ll see Canon’s there too, wearing a disguise lest the m-mount people learn the truth.
