    Sony A700 DSLR

    Sony have thrown their hat in the ring. Is this the revolution you were hoping for Don ?

    it looks pretty good. a 16-105 kit lens in particular looks VERY handy. but my GOD it's ugly. whoever designs these things needs to be shot immediately.

    In cam IS w 4stops for normal lenses or wider and 2.5stops for teles of unspecified FL.

    Which means it either reads lens data like Olympus does, or via lens coding like Leica does, or you punch it in like Pentax do.

    It appears Sony is willing to provide at least some examples of high ISO, including ISO 6400!

    The photos look good reduced, noise is visible and acceptable for what it is.
    I am eager for November; the comparisons will be exciting.

    Every in-body IS system works the same, whether it is from Konica-Minolta/Sony, Olympus or Pentax.

    They all base their camera shake counter movement on the focal length the lens reports.

    For fixed focal length lenses that do not report their focal length to the camera (older primes), Pentax provides that the user can give in the focal length mounted, so in-body IS still can know what it needs to know.

    Leica does not have in-body IS. Leica uses in-lens IS.

    Nothing personal to knock sony but 1400 body 1500 kit? That's a lot of money for something on paper that doesn't sound that impressive versus the dollars. I'm really shocked at that price point and wonder how it's going to compete with 40D.
