Sony A-Mount Cameras Could Go Fully Mirrorless in 2014

Sony is on track to abandon its revolutionary Single-Lens Translucent (SLT) technology in favor of completely mirrorless A-mount camera bodies sometime next year. Rumors of an end to models using the "Translucent Mirror Technology" such as the full frame Alpha SLT-A99 surfaced just a few weeks ago. Now thanks to a patent revealed by Sony Alpha Rumors it seems the move by Sony is almost certainly in the works.

The patent shows a mirrorless A-mount camera design with a phase detection autofocus system built right into the image sensor. This could mean that the Alpha SLT-A58 will be the last DSLR to feature Sony's specially designed pellicle mirror inside.
