Thank you one and all for your replies!!!

Your comments and advice have helped me think through what is right for me, and I greatly appreciate all your help.

It's one of the things that make DPREVIEW so great.

I learned about the free fix for FBF, and my camera is on it's way to Precision.

Finally, I've decided to stay with the A700 for now. I very much take advantage of the 18-200 (effectively 27-300) zoom, especially in the longer end, and don't want to give that up at this time.

I will wait for the NEXT generation (3 or 4 years for me) to make the switch back to full frame.

THANK YOU!

Russ
