    sony's NEX and smaller EVIL cameras, which you thought were a joke and a bad decision, has been the single most important decision sony imaging has made since its inception and has single-handedly turned sony into a viable interchangeable lens company.
    Decisions, decisions. The α900/α850 was a "final print" to the Minolta-prototype design of the Minolta 9D with some modernization thrown in. Since that time, there has been no effective UPGRADE to the SONY high-end line, concerning this type of camera. All we have are Full Frame cameras that are STILL badly in need of an ISO upgrade/noise fix.

    Dropping down to a NEX, SLT or α500-series camera is not a real solution, so I am not sure where you are coming from on this point, Rooz. Admittedly, if you are a Nikon user or Canon user ... needing to break out and make a move up in anti-shake technology, they certainly are a viable alternative. If they want to be an industry-leader in having the high-end lens mountable to everything they make, that's fine, but I, for one, still need a substantial improvement in just my "STILL MAKING" Full Frame camera ... and I do not have one.

    That's where I am coming from and have been. I thought I was pretty clear about it all. I guess if I wanted to make cinematographic images ... ahh, but I do not.

    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.
