Sony seems to have turned off its A-Mount DSLR camera and is focusing on the mirrorless camera, through its own website and a list of leading photography e-commerce websites. Sony launched its last A-Mount DSLR camera – A99 Mark II – in 2016 which has now been removed from the official website. Along with the A99 Mark II, Sony A68 and A77 Mark II have also been removed, but no announcement has been made yet.
Sony is one of the top players in the field of mirrorless or A-mount DSLR cameras. Since launching the flagship Sony A99 Mark II DSLR camera in 2016, it seems to have taken a back seat since then, but has added several new mirrorless cameras to its portfolio. Sony Alpha Rumors first noticed that the company no longer listed the Sony A99 Mark II, Sony A77 Mark II, or Sony A68 on its website. In addition, three DSLR camera models are listed as “no longer available” on the B&H Photo Video website.
Sony has not officially announced that it has stopped making DSLR cameras yet and we have reached out to the company for a statement, and will update the article to get feedback.
Sony has been focusing on its mirrorless camera since launching the Sony Alpha 1 worldwide in January this year. It comes with up to 8K video recording capabilities, a 50.1-megapixel stacked sensor and an upgraded Bionz XR image processor. It costs Rs. 5,59,990 for camera body in India. We recently reviewed Sony’s thinnest and lightest full-frame mirrorless camera, the Sony A7C, and found that it offers almost the same features as the A7 III, but with a more compact body with improved autofocus and a rotating display.
