    It covered the Vertical Grip ... and that was what I needed. It will be quite a while before anything else jumps in the bag, at this point.

    BTW: The new DT 30mm f/2.8 MACRO is only $199

    Also, SONY has released a MACRO Light Adapter, which attaches to the DT 50mm f/1.8 and DT 30mm f/2.8 lenses ... and the HVL-MT24AM flash and HVL-RLAM lamp

    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.

    Red face Into the "Ocean of Shipping" ...

    Five days ... they say. I believe nothing until it actually shows up. This is a "new release" ... not a Retail Store, on-hand, always in stock, ready to ship ... Heck, I am leery. I've been down this road before. It is often dark ... and uncertain ... fraught with peril ... and, often, dismay.

    I'm sure you can comment on the build difference of the a850 and a900 once you get it. apparently the materials may be slightly different but no specifics.

    Talking When it arrives ...

    I have reviewed the A900 ... so we shall see. There really is not that much that gets by me.

    People are arguing that SONY has it wrong about the "Dual" Bionz processors being inside the α850 and that's going to be a little rough to see. I will lift the mirror ... and peek under it, but that is as far as I go.

    Apparently the cheaper mirror mechanism is is what reduces the FPS.

    Thumbs down Not rippin' 'er open ...



    I will defer to DPReview to "carcass" the unit and finally set the record straight.

    Personally, I have images I want to take.

    Red face I like my idea better ...

    I still think this would have been an eye-catching label and far more accurate ...
