    Cool The A700 ... why settle for less?

    Which is why it's a good idea (DonSchap) to try before you buy. I wish I knew someone with an A700!
    I bought my A700 straight from SONY ... without trying it out. I had trusted the reviews on the camera and already had the
    A100 (prototype) for over a year, before I went and sold off all my Canon EOS stuff (and I had quite a bit) in preparation for
    the A700. I was NOT disappointed. The A700 immediately solved some issues I had with the A100 (expected things just not
    being there, i.e., pc-sync port, vertical grip, high-ISO) and effectively was everything I believed it to be, having all the
    completed aspects of a true DSLR.

    Now, I would like to think I am nowhere near as demanding a photographer as many others are, with my meager efforts and
    exceptionally limited range of equipment. I simply felt that the A700 offered almost everything a reasonable person could
    expect from a device of this kind and, like I said, it filled the bill.

    I can attach every device without hesitation and it is a solid base for my photography. The vertical grip and '56 flash complete
    the picture (pardon the pun), providing one of the best all-around camera designs seen today, in the APS-C market.

    I have to ask ... how can you go wrong?

    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.
