Excellent price - was looking at the 900 but tempted by this...

brilliant mate, thanks
almost pulled the trigger on a canon 7d, but I think this is a nikon d3x/Canon 1dsIII on the cheap, so brilliant

really great find- H&R added

Full-frame makes a big difference with noise levels at high ISOs (I use a Canon 5D). However, you have to have good quality glass on a full-frame camera - they show up every imperfection way more than a cropped-frame sensor...

I am so happy with Sony SLR A350, this camera must be sublime!

I snapped in the rep for you.

Very nice deal. Hot from me.

aye, i suspect however if you have the deep pockets to buy this you're probably also considering the zeiss 24-70mm f2.8 which is actually sharper than a lot of the minolta primes see the comparasion on ]kurtmunger

also cheers for the rep guys

cool cheapest full frame

£1239.99 @ RGB Photo

alternatively there's a few hong kong ebay sellers listing it at £1k but there's always the risk of getting caught out on VAT

compared to the a900, the a850 only does 3 FPS (as opposed to 5 FPS) and the viewfinder is 98% (as opposed to 100%) - otherwise they're the same
