    Hmm the DMF idea might be interesting, not for true action shots, but lots of basketball is very slow action, standing on the foul line to shoot, standing on the touchline to inbound a ball, setting a pict, and baseball right around the corner, lots of standing around waiting action there, will do some reading and playing around. Remember that the 'new Sony body" is going to have that new high speed focus motor and 21 AF points..............we shall see! LOL

    Just that really, a rumor. But you can probably expect improved AF!

    I have read like 3 rumors of the a700's replacement, NOTHING from Sony, and you have to wonder how much wish list is included in the 'rumored facts' I think everyone agrees most likely will see a new body over the summer / fall, tilt screen live view and ovie mode will almost be a for sure to stay up with the herd. the other parts of the rumors who knows, 14 or 16 mp sensor, 21 focus points, wifi compatable, faster quiter focus motor, all may be rumor and desire......we shall see

    i hope it is not true or at least delayed until the end of the year. i would hate it if something new came out within 6 months of me buying the a700.
    but i will not upgrade body anytime soon.
    hoping to get the Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 EX DG Macro first and eventually the Sony 70-300G

    There will always be something new better and exciting just around the corner, or available right after you spend big money on something else!

    You really had no idea that the A700 was getting refreshed? Been out since Q4 2007, it's about time for April~June or so.

    It's hard to keep up with bodies, good glass on the other hand....

    lol it's not the money that i'm worried about. i have this obsession about newer and better things.
    used to be about PC hardware and cell phones. i'm worried it may start with camera bodies as well.
    it's a decease/obsession that i've always had with whatever i'm currently into at the moment.

    i knew it would eventually happen. but since nothing was introduced at the PMA, i was hoping that Sony would let this year ride out because of the economy and all or at least not announce anything till September or later.
