Please form an orderly queue for one of these.
What do you think?
How nice, won't take me long to know how to use it ... all the controls are the same and in the same place as my a700 ... that's proper joined-up thinking from Sony.
Well I have a good amount of Minolta glass and I am sure I could do without one of my kidneys...
And you could do with being called FujiSigmaNoltaSamsungSony...
There's an interesting article on Luminous-Landscape ... he gets a few facts about available lens wrong but never mind ...
Oh well there goes the savings
As expected the vertical grip is separate and I'm glad about that as it keeps the bulk down. $3,000 should be near £2,000 with a bit of luck. It seems so "reasonably" priced that it might not tumble in price over the coming months. At least that's an argument worth trying with the other half.
Sony Store price will be £2100 but it will be cheaper in other dealers I'm sure.
It sounds fantastic and today I'll start saving - but I'll wait for your review before taking the plunge.
PS Today is my birthday so any chance of a pressie?
My guess is £1850 in the shops.......
I wonder when we can expect a first look in AP?
I notice this news did not make the main page of the website which is strange?
Neither has anything else since the 3rd......
That's true also.
I am sure there will be a news page article in the weeks magazine, hopefully, role on Saturday
I am still thinking about that and the best I came up with is
Sam SonyFujiSigmaNolta P.I. .... but I guess not...
Of course not...............its a Sony and as we know, they are not classed as a `pro` camera, just wait until the new Canon comes out, theres a good chance that will make the main page /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
Actually the reason is that the news editor (Chris Cheesman) is away on holiday, as is the tech ed, and I am away with Sony looking at the A900 - and very nice too!
I will have a report for you soon. And it's not just Sony - there's been no news all week.
No news is ... bad timing.
Thats a cynical view, I just assumed the web guy was on holiday!
No such luck, Warehouse Express are doing it at £1995. See here
Its a shame warehouse express did not stick to their initially posted price of £1680 before they raised it to match Jessop's and everyone else.
Maybe someone from Sony saw the page...
