    Did anyone watch this and the piece about the Pennine Way with Derry Brabbs? Did you see he was using A SONY A99??

    Never watch it, and what pray is wrong with Sony cameras?

    Nothing at all, I have A200, A580, and A77, while my wife has A55. Comes from being a Minolta user I guess, you get used to being in the minority, and pleasantly surprised to see one in the hands of a respected pro, though I have been told it might not be an A99, could it be A77mk2? I can`t read the model on iplayer, but presumed a landscape pro photographer would be using A99. Either way it was definitely a Sony.

    ^ The SLTs whilst the viewfinder image can be inferior to that of an SLR have the advantage of being quiet in operation and have a wide range of lenses that are stabilised due to the inbuilt "Steadyshot". I picked up a 500mm f8 Reflex lens last week, I was most surprised to find it sitting in the used cabinet with mostly less exotic company. At £220 it was impossible to pass over.

    I always watch Countryfile for the weekly weather forecast.

    I noticed the Sony too but couldn`t identify it.
