The problem as i see it (purely from the point of view of the likelihood of Sony actually releasing an adapter) is that IF they did that, then they'd make some money from sales of the adapter, BUT they'd lose money from corresponding lack of sales of their own proprietary on-camera AIS-shoe external mics.

So if they DO make one (and i'm sure if they were going to, they'd have done so by now) then i think they'd simply price it to cover their own predicted-loss-of-revenue from the drop in their own mic sales.

But i agree totally it would be nice. It's fairly typically Sony - effectively forcing you to purchase their own accessories.

I believe Sony's official response to this request is "buy an A1"
