    Yet, SONY can find a way to dispose of thousands of jobs and hours. LOL

    What a wonderful economy we have going, here.

    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.

    Well! I guess we all have a vested interest in seeing Sony survive this mess.
    Businesses are going down like ninepins over here.

    Being financially challenged does not absolve you from being intelligent about things. You still need good people at the helm or that ship is heading for the rocks!

    i took a bunch of shots..i also didnt like the review of the pictures.. they all showed up as blurry...the nikon was clear.. i was realy disapointed.. not to mention they were unwilling to deal...if it was going to cost me another 200 bucks in tax i may as well wait two days and order online..no tax free shipping..unfortunatly there aren't to many camera stores around here
    Take the suggestions here, go back and try it again.

    Do not use a DT lens, it will cut your resolution in half. Make sure SSS is enabled. Use an ISO of 400-800, to maintain a good shutter speed in the indoor lighting, steady your shot, aim, and fire. Then come home and look at the results.

    If (when) you go back take a CF card with you so you can view the results at home.

    I doubt you really need 24 megapixels.

    Just get a D700, put a 24-70 f/2.8 on it and be done. You'll be happy you did.

    I think you are missing an opportunity with the a900. If you shot with a CZ 16-80mm, you are basically not seeing what the camera can do at all.

    By all prior accounts, the viewfinder is way better than others.

    I agree with Visual Reality if you do go Nikon... get the D700, not the D3X. The extra megapixels aren't really going to benefit unless you print at tremendous sizes. 4 foot by 6 foot or something. Even if money wasn't an issue, I would prefer a D700 (or D3) over a D3x for the better low light performance, and faster frame per second.

    And if you need the resolution, the 5D Mk II or the a900 is that kind of resolution for a much better price.
