    Well, I would not put your photography "on hold" waiting to buy a new camera body. If you need some kind of new glass, buy it, and then sell it when the time comes, after that new FX camera is in your hand. There will be DX cams for a while.

    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.

    I currently have an SP AF 70-200mm and SP AF 200-500mm. I use the 70-200 quit a bit. On the other hand I'm starting to think that I don't use the 200-500 enough to justify having so I might be letting it go. I might also trade both of them in and get a Sony 70-200G

    No Don I won't give it up again. I am just not going to buy dx only lenses. It may/will be awhile before I get the fx but then again you never know. I didn't think I would have an A700 right now either. Just glad to still be shooting.

    Smile Remote use of the TAMRON lens

    Well, as I have stated in the past, the A700 is quite a camera. I am really enjoying its flexibility and am working to enjoy even more.

    I just could not do it with anything less.

    I have it out in the yard, doing remote bird shots. I do not have the USB Robotic Tri-pod head as yet, so I am limited in the location of the shots I can get, but it is quite toasty being in the house and not having to nurse-maid the camera.

    BTW: PVC Ethernet cable really does not like it below 40-degrees. Hopefully there will be nicer days in the upcoming week to work with.
