IMO highly unlikely... just the usual habit to not show the construction numbers

How many J-10A & J-10B/C are service? Do earlier model still outnumber current one?

Yes, this is a Batch 05 J-10C but as far as I remember correctly it was already posted early this year and if it then was a recent one is yet another question. As such I'm sure there are many more built since then even if we haven't seen any of them in an operation unit.

Why China still focus on 4.5th J-10? Maybe they need new middle 5th fighters.

Simply since there are still too many even older J-7 and J-8s to replace and developing a medium-weight class 5th generation type cost time and money. As such it is the same reason, why the USA still build and field F/A-18E/F and F-15 fighters and not only F-22s and F-35s.
