    The side by side test of the A850-A900

    Here is a link to a site that did a side by side comparison of the A850, A900, 5D Mark II and the D3X.

    I would have to agree with 100% of the review. so far. They are good and pretty thorough at this.

    I also have to agree that Full Frame is probably the way to go, if you plan on shooting all the time. The "occasional guns" can get by with APS-C ... but eventually, you are going to run into a challenge that Full Frame can easily answer. APS-C requires a new lens (e.g., UWA, and that's another $500). Why not have one? If you are at the point of "upgrade" ... the price point is seriously ... right there, within reach. Skip a few extra snacks.

    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've bought into it ... they met me half way. How could I not?

    It was in my plan to eventually get the Full Frame. If you look back in these forums for the last year and a half ... but the darn financial structure went belly up and derailed my original plans. This is ... well, an alternative. But, like anyone else ... bring on the company. It's not going to get much cheaper, at this point.
