Sorry I seem to be filling the forum up
I held a A700 in jessops, it has quite a tank like feel to it, so I was wondering does your hand get discomfort from holding it for a long time?

How can holding a Sony A700 camera be a discomfort, it must surley be the most heavenly feeling on earth next to holding a great Lady.
Or, indeed, holding a Sony A900....
I have the 700 with battery grip and yes it's quite weight but hey it looks good and many passers by think I'm the press and it looks even better with flashgun.

Why? In my last 'encounter' with the police I got them to line up and I took a couple of group photos of them.
Why the fear about the Police,they should protect us.
Thats what I think as I help to pay their wages.

And how long ago was this as it sounds like somethig from a distant time
So far no problems with my local law enforcement but rent a cops a different story. Quick story here. I was thrown out of my local shopping centre a few months ago but a few weeks spotted one the guards who escorted off site in Wigan Railway station. So I had a little fun taking photos in front of him knowing he couldn't stop me! Okay I doubt he would of remebered me but it felt good !
Today at same centre two youths were taking photos with compacts no one seemed to mind but I do wonder if it would of been a different story if they were using slrs.

20th June, 2009, at a local carnival.
I approached one of the policemen and said with a cheeky grin "Can I take a photo of you lot, or will I get my collar felt?"
He looked at me for a moment then burst out laughing.
"Take as many as you like" he replied.
Well, I lined them up and took a couple.
I went to a church on Sunday just gone to take some pictures of my Grandson's Christening, as I was testing the flash on my camera (SLR) a person from the church approached me and said they did not allow flash photography in the church, As I did not have a lens with me for low light shots this made it difficult and the shots I took where very noisey as I had to wack up the iso. when the ceramony started all the people with point and shoot cameras started taking pictures and guess what, they all had there flashes turned on. Was I annoyed
I've got the 700 with the battery grip, and it feels just about right to me - but then, I have big hands...
Honestly, the other week, I had to take the grip off for a while, and had trouble using the camera, as it was too light!
If you buy a Camera strap from ephotozine, the ones that are stretchy you will get no problems. Hand holding the a700 is like carrying a pint of lager.
