Sony Removes A-Mount Lenses From Website

Sony A-Mount arguably died the day E-mount was announced but it hung on until 2016 when the Sony a99II was released. This gave some hope that Sony would continue releasing flagship bodies into the future to support A-mount shooters and even Sony insisted in 2017 that A-mount wasn’t dead yet, but with the only new A-mount body being listed as discontinued in 2021 things seemed over for A-mount.

Now kunkoku has noticed that Sony discontinued all A-mount lenses on the sony store. It seems new lenses were being produced up until recently or maybe Sony just sold out what was left of existing stock, but now there should be no doubts that A-mount is dead. I just wish Sony wouldn’t have been so insistent in the past that they would continue A-mount development. Kunkoku speculates that the discontinuation might be due to COVID-19, but we all knew this was coming since we haven’t heard a peep about A-mount for quite a few years now. That being said it looks like used bodies and lenses are rising in price due to scarcity at B&H Photo.
