They handle REALLY well. The A700 is the only camera by a brand I
don't own that I could just pick up and use. It looks like a potato
but it has great ergonomics.

well there is a good heritage there, Im thinking KM 7D
just look at these top deck controls

theres a lot going on there and its all quite visible, I like 7D, dunno about Sony

But aside from that I think it comes down to brand recognition. Lots
of people shopping at a big box retailer really do not know the
camera companies. They know Sony so they buy it.

hmm yeah, but something about that doesnt quite add up me thinks

i might be speaking out of ignorance but
the A900 aside, Sony dSLRs dont seem to do anything especially well.
Im some reporting circles they have less DR than we do, and theyre
not exactly known for noise performance.

Yet theyve managed to chalk up around 10% or the market and grab #3
spot from nowhere, i think thats kind of interesting.
