    Yeah, i have the A900. It's good, but not fantastic. Unless you need the 24 MP resolution, "original" 35 mm film angle of view, and the big viewfinder, it's not really worth the money IMO. If, like me, you don't like the IQ out of the A700 (both JPEG and RAW), the A900 is better in that regard. But other than that, there's not much difference.

    FWIW, I am not that thrilled with the value of FF cameras in general (I have tested the D700 and top Nikon glass a lot these days). Believe it or not, my Olympus gear gives me greater satisfaction (except when it comes to the occasional specific need for maximum resolution or high ISO capability).

    16-35mm and 70-400mm out in hong kong.

    The 16-35mm looks sweet!

    The two can also be found on ebay from one seller for about 1800 and 1700 (for the 70-400mm), which is a bit overpriced for the 16-35mm anyway!

    I would love the UWA the 16-35mm offers in IQ, too bad it would need to go with the A900 lol....

    I am leaning towards it, we'll see how the reviews fair.

    I'm not sure where I want to go next.

    Macro, Zoom, or 24-70mm Zeiss

    I've sold quite a bit of stuff on eBay so I'm flush.
    The 70-300mm G SSM is about the same size and weight (750gms) as my 28-135mm so I know it will handle ok.
    The 70-200 f2.8 G SSM is about 1500gms with the 1.4x Tele and
    the 70-400mm G SSM is also 1500gms.
    The weight worries me a bit. Any Comments?

    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.
