This is probably why the A700 and A900 don't have live view, they would be using a QVGA sensor on a VGA screen, and it would look like poop.
    ahh...wasnt aware of that. hopefully they can get it to work using the same principals with video.

    I think they are trying to be smart with the prosumer and FF.
    how so ?

    context clues point to the fact that:

    A800 may get micro adjust, but I doubt they will go over 16MP. I think 12 (A700 and D300) was about the sweet spot.
    Sony will likely not go insane with megapixels and will probably include micro af adjust. He's saying that the A800 will not go over 16 MP (inline with the rumored 16MP D400).

    Sounds reasonable to me .

    Thanks for the input guys, didn't get to follow up last night and this is first I got on tonight. I will continue to ponder! I am going to sell the 70-210 and the little Tokina, likely will hang on to the 70-300 for a knock about, I mean with what they sell for new not sure how much I would get for it, still has almost 5 years on the warranty. also if i go to baseball on Tuesday and it's still SNOWING! I don;t think I will use the Tamron 70-200!
