  6. Yes, (and not wanting to start a flame war) many aren't reviews but there
    are a number that are IMHO reasonable reviews found in that Google search:

    But then I guess it depends on how much of an in-depth analysis & review
    you're looking for. Those should give you a pretty good idea though, IMHO.

  7. If you are looking for qualification of its performance, about the only
    thing you need to consider is how Sony improved AF and the high ISO
    noise compared to the Alpha 100. Image size is identical, basic
    sharpness appears to be the same (very good resolution), but AF is
    faster and more accurate and the boost up to 3200 ISO is accompanied by
    a half to one stop improvement in noise levels and a more pleasant noise
    structure. WB and flash performance seem to be fixed as well.

    Beyond that, reading the reviews which list the features, changes versus
    A100, and show the ergonomics is all that's really needed.

    dPreview can be very slow to cover some camera models.
