    Yeah ... I would have to agree .... there is only so much sacrifice you can make for the α700 ... and this is right at that point. I mean, it really is close, though. In fact, I would go so far as to suggest you show this image to the SONY guy at the store and ask, "What would you do?" and maybe he will cut you a break or something.

    I've seen the α700 going for less, lately, but you have to be careful.

    ADORAMA
    -------------------------------------
    Here is your requested price quote:
    SKU: ISODSLRA700
    Brand: Sony
    Title: Sony DSLR-A700 a (alpha) Digital SLR Camera Body, 12.24 MP,
    Interchangeable Lens.
    Price: $1,249.95
    -----------------------------

    You cannot buy it online with Adorama, at this price, because of a non-compete agreement they have going with SONY, so it will require a phone order.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    lol good tactic which would probably work just as well with a photo of the a100.

    Now, I'll have you know, Rooz ... the α100 still sells for more than the α200. Kind of a curious note, don't you think?

    Anyway ... as I stated earlier ... it is really hard to go wrong with an α700 in your bag ... unless you just don't use it.
