    If I use my 16-80 on my a700 at 16mm I get vignetting. So I would say they can't guarantee the use of DT lenses on the a700.

    Question Why all the waiting???

    Is that with a filter on it, Tom? If so, you might try the low-profile filter for the wide shots. I bought my 77mm Low-Profile CP for just that reason, on my 10-20mm f/4-5.6 SIGMA. It does not have any threads on the front of it for a lens cap to catch on to, so I bought a press-on type, which actually fits on the outside of the filter.

    If no filter ... it's a post processing crop.


    Back to the topic ... I been sitting here, wondering ... THIS "change" is what took six months to produce (since PMA 09 - March 2009 - they could have just silk-screened a "α850" label on a α900 body and put it in the glass box at the show - something - anything!)? A cut down α900? No new production line, just some guy with a soldering gun modifying a circuit board? Guys, guys ... c'mon ... there has to be something else missing.

    It has me asking ... "Why the wait?" It's just an α900 Version ...

    A900 redux

    From what I can tell, the A850 is the same body as the A900, with slower burst rate 3 fps vs. 5.9 fps, and no wireless remote commander.

    Makes me wonder if they are going to start offering a greater ISO range in the A900 or TBD A1000???

    The price is supposed to be "1/3 less than the current a900," so it's sub $2k

    Question

    Have you seen it posted, yet, Ryan? I cannot get anyone to commit, even with cash money!

    i dont see what the problem is. its a cheaper fx camera, mainly cos the a900 doesn't sell for shit. its a good move from sony, at least from a potential sales POV. you're just whinging don.

    Whining?

    Bring it on ... I could use a good side-by-side ... see what the fuss is all about. I am honestly tired of all this sneakin' around nonsense.
