According to listings on Sony’s own website and a leading photography e-commerce website, the company has discontinued its A-mount DSLR cameras and is concentrating on mirrorless cameras. The A99 Mark II, Sony’s last A-mount DSLR camera, was released in 2016 and has since been deleted from the company’s website. Along with the A99 Mark II, the Sony A68 and A77 Mark II have been discontinued, although no official announcement has been released.
When it comes to mirrorless or A-mount DSLR cameras, Sony is a major player. Since releasing the flagship Sony A99 Mark II DSLR camera in 2016, the company seems to have taken a step back since then, but it has recently added some more mirrorless cameras to its lineup. Sony Alpha Rumours was the first to note that the Sony A99 Mark II, Sony A77 Mark II, and Sony A68 are no longer listed on the company’s website. Furthermore, B&H Photo Video’s website lists the three DSLR camera models as “No Longer Available.”
Sony has not yet revealed whether or not it will continue to make DSLR cameras, and we have reached out to the company for comment. We will update the article until we receive a response.
Sony has been concentrating on mirrorless cameras since the introduction of the Sony Alpha 1 in January of this year. It has an upgraded Bionz XR image processor, a 50.1-megapixel stacked camera, and an 8K video recording capability. The camera body is priced at Rs. 5,59,990 in India. The Sony A7C, Sony’s slimmest and lightest full-frame mirrorless camera, was recently tested, and we discovered that it has much of the same features as the A7 III, along with better autofocus and a spinning touchscreen, all in a more compact shell.
