    Reminds me of M$.

    A simple XMLHttpRequest object, they also must come out with their own version(s). It's just to be 'unqiue' and setting 'standards'.

    Thus pissing off a lot of people.

    The question was: "R U guys excited about the new Sony DSLR release?"

    My answer is: yes, I want to see what so many ppl talked about and have been waitning for so long. So now, I want to see this miracle camera.

    But, I guess, I am not going to regret my decision of going for Oly, I am happy with my camera. And if I would have wanted a better one, it would have been a Nikon D200. Even after 06 06 06, the supposed release day of Alpha according to wind30.

    BTW, has anybody heard something? Today is 06 06 07, so it must be out now. What a day to have as a release day, all these "6". Doesn't Sony knows "666" is the devils number?

    but if you see the recent trends, Canon was not really worried about nikon. Looked at the recent 30D launch. Like never change like that. No innovation, no nothing. Just happy with their leader position. As nikon also never introduce something really convincing. It is the other manufacturers like oly who is desperately trying to innovate with live view etc.

    Ultimately is not about which camera is better but rather are they will to slash the price and makes it better for us consumers.

    At least the Sony is uping the bar by introducing a DSLR that uses a similar sensor as the D200 at D70s price. This will force not just Nikon but also canon to at least make better products if not reduce the price.

    Furthermore, if you notice that 2 out of 3 Carl Z new lens for Sony is FULL-FRAME. Sony makes their own sensors so I think they can develop a full frame sensor pretty easily and compete with canon 5D. Another price war else nobody compete with canon 5D and full frame will always be so expensive.

    Of coz I'm excited...
    Not coz I'm going to jump ship from Nikon to Sony.
    But any competition are welcome and good for the consumers.
    Especially, for the DSLR market.
    More competition may not mean prices will go down, but it will push
    the DSLR technology to a higher level.
    All companies want our money. They will try to beat one another
    in term of technology and hence better products come out.

    Let's wait and see what Sony can do and hope it gives a good fight
    to Nikon and Canon...

    There is a reason why Sony DSLR is called "Alpha". Last time Minolta SLR/DSLR cameras are known as Alpha in some places while some places is know as Dynax Maxxum.

    The official specs have already been discussed in the Minolta sub-forum in clubsnap since 5th June and previews by well known photography websites around the world have been out since 6th Jun.

    (p.s. I keep seeing you saying that your Oly is the best camera in the world for you but you keep contradicting yourself by saying another camera D200 is better for you. So I guess you're saying that the D200 is the better best camera for you.).

    Yes, more competition is always better for technological improvement and lowering of price over the longer run.

    So any additional competition in the market place is always welcome by consumers.

    Bigger image sensor is always better and the stumbling block has always been the price. As technology improves, better yields will lower price and full frame is the way forward.

    Absolutely Not. Don't care if it gets released or not. At the very least, not this whimp of a camera Sony is introducing!

    How much would I pay? $0.


    I am absolutely disappointed with Sony. I was hoping Sony will give the DSLR market a shot to invigorate itself. At the moment, its too dominated by 2 companies. There is really no competitions. Sony is a mass market expert, I should not have expected anything else.

    eow, you really mean "you" can't accomodate/tolerate a "prima donnas".

    I will take this either as your ignorance in the importance of the rights to freedom of expressions, or take this as a direct challenge and insult. Since I do not start wars, I take this that you are just ignorant. You may prove me wrong.

    It sounds nothing special to me. I still prefer Canon coz I have invested the L lens and infected by Canon virus.
    btw, a "SONY" brand name printed on the DSLR cam sounds weird to me.
    Canon EOS 70D + 40D
