How about body upgrades ... in the body!
Again, a hardware-upgrade seems totally possible, with replacement of the SSS sensor. Let's face it, it is not "welded" down ...
because it moves! :eek: (who knew?) It is not part of the circuit board. If SONY were to release a "pro" level upgrade to the popular
α700 ... we could get some more mileage out of these cameras BEFORE having to purchase a whole new unit and effectively
tossing the old one into the "bit bucket" of dust and rememberance.
I don't know about you, because lenses are one thing, but it does not make me all that happy to have all this older body hardware
constantly piling up. Along with the α700 & α100, I have 7 camera bodies ... enough, I say!
The idea of being able to actively recycle the DSLR with a quick internal parts exchange is a lot more desireable. I do not have to
relearn the position of controls ... and other nuance changes. The α700's 3-inch LCD is about as big as practical, at this point.
