    Lightbulb Solid move ...

    Frank, you should do a thorough examination of the camera ... compared to the a100. You, more than anyone else, would have tremendous insight on the advantages ... and perhaps, missing qualities of the unit in comparison.

    Good luck and let's see something GOOD! That ISO advantage looks awesome. Perhaps a series of ISO side-by-sides, indoors and out.

    Keeping as a backup. I have all my children asking the same question. If I could clone it into 5 cameras I would give you one.LOL
