Oh an here .

So I guess we'll see more over the coming weeks/months.

Personally, I think a model like this can work in the range, but how will it be pitched against the 850/900 with features and performance, price,noise, IQ etc. Let the rumours commence..

Surely it'll have a crop sensor?, the name A750 to me implies it's an upgrade to the A700 which is a crop sensor, makes sense to me anyway.

I hope it's on par with the Canon 7D or Nikon D300, that'll do me.
I'm using the A350 at the moment and find I'm being held back by not being able to go higher than ISO 400 due to noise issues, and my 2.5 frames/second is of little use so I shoot single shot and have to focus with the centre focus point then re-compose as it's the only cross hair point I have to work with.

I've been waiting for this camera for a few years and hope my patience is going to be rewarded.
Might be Sony's last chance to keep me using their cameras in it's not.

There is much debate on crop of FF. To follow the model line than cropped would fit, but also for marketing a reduced res FF would also be very attractive.

This is another chance and good one I think, for Sony to build a camera answering issues from those invested in the brand.

To be honest the A700 is a decent upgrade to the A350, the CMOS sensor gives much better high ISO performance than the CCD that Sony for some mystery saddled the lower A cameras with. It also packs in the faster frame rate.

The A700 sensor in an A300 body would have been a strong product in my view.

As for sensor I think a new crop cameras would make sense.

I'm still more than happy with my A700, just want improved high ISO performance, not worried about video or Live View but can see the attraction.

Well, despite being over the moon with most aspects of my A300, I really don't think Sony deserve to succeed. Out of all their models, there's not one that has both Live View and +/- 2 stops Autobracketing, which is what you need if you do a lot of HDR like me. Despite loads of requests in the Sony Forums, they have totally ignored their customers' needs. All it would take is a simple Firmware update for Gawds sake.

I think the biggest mistake a lot of camera manufacturers make is chasing feature count (and Sony are just as guilty as others) . . . while Autobracketing is a useful feature . . . it becomes less so when shooting RAW . . . and DRange optimisation again is only effective when shooting JPEG.

I just want a Camera with good noise performance at sensible (400-800) ISO . . . without having to use 4 or 5 different RAW converters to process different images to get the best result.

If I want live view I look through the viewfinder Grin, I have it on my A2 bridge camera, and while I do use it occasionally it's not really a must have feature . . . .

Nice to see the price falling on the A900 again . . . .Santa Baby . . .

Quote:while Autobracketing is a useful feature . . . it becomes less so when shooting RAW . . .
Until you start shooting HDR and it becomes very handy, then you start to want say 5 shots 1 stop apart...

Liveview I thought was a waste of space, based on using compact cameras. But when I tried the version on my camera I found it was great for landscapes and macro work. being able to spot the lens down and check the Depth of field zoomed in for example is very good as is having a spot meter function you can place anywhere in the frame that is independent of focus point....

So me I am all for them adding features, sensibly.
