Thread: Sony Alpha DSLR-A700, previewed

    Post Sony Alpha DSLR-A700, previewed

    Nearly two years after Konica Minolta transferred its camera division over to Sony, and over a year after Sony's first DSLR (the A100), today is the day that the curtain is finally lifted on the long-awaited 'high end' Alpha digital SLR (in principle the replacement for the Konica Minolta 7D). The new model sports an impressive specification including magnesium alloy construction, 12MP CMOS sensor (with on-chip A/D conversion), 5fps shooting and a wealth of features and customization options, though interestingly (given the recent spate of announcements) no live view option. There's also a couple of new lenses and a new vertical shooting grip. We've had a pre-production A700 for a couple of weeks in order to produce a detailed hands-on preview, available now.

    Note we haven't received any press release from Sony, hence there isn't one here."

    Hmmm funny though....both Nikon and Sony do not allow people to post picture of their 12mp CMOS sensor.....are they launching for the sake of launching their hopefully in 2 months try to fix whatever problems they are trying to hide?

    Any one any comments?
