Also, please note that an brand new A100 with an 85mm G lens will still be much cheaper than a D2X.
compare orange to apples, of course get bananas la. hope TheRock can substantial his argument with more detail, otherwise it holds as much water as a fishing net.

DPReview stated that Alpha 100 show even more resolution detail than D200.
and even compare to other 10Mpixels DSLR, Alpha 100 has the Extinction resolution among all.We were a little surprised to see the Alpha DSLR-A100 beating the Nikon D200 on our resolution charts, but that's how things played out. The A100 delivered slightly more absolute horizontal and vertical resolution than the D200 and continued detail much further (the 'extinction resolution'). Here also we're seeing more of an advantage from ten megapixels over the eight megapixels of the Canon EOS 30D, however these numbers mean fractional improvements and as we have already seen don't always equate to a visibly more detailed 'real life' image.
May be because D2X has even higher 12Mpixel resolution?
May be can post more detail and see?

I not sure about sony alpha sharpness or clarity...but whatever i snapped really good quality pictures...compared to the rest of the DSLR...i just feel that this is the camera i wanted... anyway really it's the fact how well you compose your pictures and capture the essence of the moment...just my personal views...
Sony A700 - Sony A6300
its the photo that shows how good the photographer is.
its also how well know you your cam and how to know full use of it. i am very happy with my KM 7D. i can change ANYTHING within my thumb's reach. everything is there for me. i am pretty sure holy d2x cant do the same right? must go menu, press here press there, choose ur focus point. cows come home already.
wow....i can feel the heat already....
TheRock... just my 2 cents worth...no camera is perfect...if u find a camera that you can live with its weakness and able to go around it, u will be producing perfect pictures still. as for me, i will still stand for my new sony alpha... at least it still amaze me more than my minolta z3...
after reading comments here , i think i will have to move around looking for more comparism before deciding on alpha . afterall , i actually had my mind set on alpha but when i did some hands on , i really find that focus speed is ... somehow slower than expected , could be the standard lens as stated here . going to check it out with other lens when i am free .
Yup, go have some hands-on on different cameras & see which is most comfy to your hands. BTW, is AF speed very crucial to you? You shoot a lot of fast action stuff? For me, I find that my KM or Alpha will be able to satisfy my needs.

The in-built anti-shake helps u to save money on lenses, no need to buy costy lenses with image stablizer (I.S), a simple tamron, sigma or even kit lens will do.
Why no one commended on the dynamic range of the Alpha?
I have tested one and must say that I was impressed and the dynamic range is better that what I expected!
As for it's other functions & performance, all I'll say is that it a jolly good attempt by Sony for it's 1st dSLR.
