    Yes.

    I don't know how I ever get a decent shot with such a problematic set-up.

    I must be a genius.

    I'd like to see the engineering behind how they get to move the sensor outside the image circle and still get decent results.

    well i;m no expert but if it doesnt have SSS, then why bother ? apart from Don and a few other sony/ KM diehards i cant see it selling too many units unless they go in for a sub $2k camera. hell...even then, i'd take a d300 over it. SSS is the ONLY thing keeping sony in the market. without it, well...even Don wouldn;t have one.

    CW, I'll bet you something usable ... especially for you ... a Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III ... the most base and popular telephoto lens available. You could build your next empire upon it.

    What you going to pony up?

    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.

    600/4 IS. That's how confident I am.

    Tell me how you think they are going to have a sensor move out of the image circle and still provide a useable image?

    Won't happen.

    Thumbs up You are on ...

    Okay ... I know you aren't getting a lot of work out of that lens, but same here. And shipping on that bad boy is going to be killer. LOL

    Anyway, the A900 was last seen in Victoria, Canada ... carried by Sasquatch (aka "Big Foot"), sporting a nifty new CZ 24-70mm f/2.8 on it. So, the elusive camera is ... out there.
