    A while ago I saw a rumor that put it in the 2k region, Obviously this is not the case. At 3k I would probably go for Canon or Nikon, but at 2k I might be inclined to take a chance on a FF Sony. Shame it coulda been a contenda.

    Doesn't matter much, it's noisy, just like the Canon 1DsMkIII. Forgo
    the modest resolution increase and go with the Nikon D3 or D700.

    I have a sure-fire method for bringing the price down: Don't buy it!

    Don't say that! Coffins must be wood or cardboard so they (and the
    body) biodegrade. Plastic, despite all its flaws, has greater
    resistance to corrosion than many metals, it tends to stick around, to
    the detriment of environments everywhere. Despite this, and the
    rising cost of oil, plastic continues to be used more and more.
    Personally, I don't fancy the idea of paper garbage bags much
    though.
    If someone invents a truly biodegradable form of plastic that doesn't
    cost a fortune, they will end up the richest person on the planet.

    Nonsense. Whether in a plastic coffin or not, bodies decompose,
    as they do when coffins are placed within concrete, plastic or metal
    burial vaults.
    There are many biodegradable plastics. They tend to be more
    expensive, but what's your definition of "cost a fortune"? 1000x?
    100x? 10x? Here's one that's only 2x the cost and it only took a
    minute or so to locate it using Google :

    Well I said at least $3000 but I must say I'm amazed if that price is
    right. I guess Sony makes sensors so they can do that. Twice the pixels
    of a D700 and ISO to 3200 vs 6400. Comparable to a D200 in crop mode. No
    live view, nothing about weather seals, I'll bet the shutter life isn't
    as sturdy etc but still that's pretty nice.

    But you provide evidence that you're still wrong.
    So the body is magnesium and the exterior is plastic.

    That's still a magnesium body.

    Just like you insisted that the body is made of plastic.

    Give it up. You're a clown and it's become pretty obvious to
    everybody.

    Sony $2999.99


    REALITY CHECK, It's a SONY!!!

    Working pros aren't going to sell off their huge investments in Pro Nikon
    and Canon gear to buy a Sony!

    Regardless of what all the measurbators think. There isn't that much of a
    job from 18 mp to 25

    Sony = overpriced rebadged Minolta lenses, and a few grossly overpriced
    Zeiss lenses.

    MUST BE WOOD or CARDBOARD??? Says who? Modern caskets can be wood, steel,
    copper, bronze ... and fibreglas (plastic)!

    Once again RichA opens his mouth before putting his brain in gear.

    Don't bank on it; just remember what the Beta-cam did to/for the pro video
    world...

    Might take some time, though.

    Sony was a big player in the TV/Video ENG world, they aren't in the still
    image world. In the end Beta died. The only win Sony had in my memory is
    Blu-Ray.

    I used the Umatic, big, bulky and ugly. I did say Sony was a big player in
    the TV world at one time. OK the Trinitron was great too.

  19. Too bad Sony killed Minolta to get it.! Minolta had a couple great film
    bodies, the Maxxum 7 and 9 were outstanding cameras. The Minolta G lenses
    were outstanding. Minolta made lenses good enough for Leitz to rebadge!

    Minolta needed a Guardian Angel, but Sony turned out to be a vulture, Pentax
    got lucky their Angels were Samsung and Hoya, had Minolta had that type of
    help they would still be strong.

    They aren't using them for coffee cups, garbage bags, water bottles,
    etc. The things that constitute some of the largest parts of
    landfills.
