Well, personally ... I would like to know if this is the case, also. A lot of people are doing some in-depth review of the two cameras to justify the upgrade. I figure having both allows you to have a tremendously capable backup to your new A700.

It would be nice to be a little more sure that they take the same shot, with the same settings. If there is a serious difference, it needs to be examined and adjusted for ... either by the A100 or the vice versa. Those people NOT owning BOTH ... well, the issue is moot.
