Back in the day, Sony was known for their Cyber-shot digital compact cameras, but after acquiring Minolta, the company started to develop its own DSLR cameras. This proved to be somewhat popular for a while, and later the company expanded to mirrorless cameras and then full frame mirrorless cameras.
For those wondering when Sony will announce a new A-mount DSLR, you’re out of luck. This is because it appears that Sony has decided to stop selling DSLRs. This is according to a report from Sony Alpha Rumors who have noticed that Sony has pulled its A99ii, A77ii, and A68 DSLR cameras from their website as well as BHPhoto, who notes that the cameras are no longer available.
Given the success that Sony has seen with its mirrorless cameras, it shouldn’t be surprising that they would want to shift their focus there. Plus, mirrorless cameras have many an advantage over DSLRs such as being more compact/portable, while offering up excellent image quality, making it ideal for both professionals and hobbyists.
Sony has not yet commented on whether or not they are out of the DSLR market for good, but given that the last update was the A99ii back in 2016, it might be safe to assume that they are no longer keen.
