Upgrading a Sony A330 or switch to new system?

I am still using my old (purchased in 2009 I believe) Sony Alpha 330 and ideally I would like to upgrade to another Sony A mount. However, Sony seems to have abandoned the A mount platform. The last A mount camera ( at least in my budget range), the alpha68 came out in 2016, so it’s kind of old itself. I kind of feel let down by Sony...

I already have four lenses for my Sony and I was hoping to just upgrade the body and keep the lenses. I am not a professional photographer so I am not willing to spend thousands on a new system. If I switch to something else, I’d have to basically start from scratch, investing in both a camera and lenses.

I am hoping to get some ideas...

Yes A mount is dead but that’s not to say buying the very good A68 won’t last you for another decade. That’s the budget option covered.

Then if you want to spend more a system switch to a mirrorless option would make sense. Nb you can use your A mount lenses via an adapter on an e mount camera to make the transition smoother. No need to switch to full frame the Sony nex and A series cameras accept the adapters.

The A68 or 77II is the way to go if your existing lenses are good and you have a significant investment in them. They have relatively little resale value now and some dealers no longer take A mount in part exchange.

Fwiw I have an A58 and A7III.
