I think you hit the nail on the head, Mark. Sony does seem to be unsure of the high end market DSLR users real needs and such... or, rather, they are indifferent to them.

It's exactly the other way around. The 'higher-end photographers' here (who appear to be snobbish ex-minoltians for the most part, and not pro photogs, lets remember) don't understand that sony need to make money, and are not going to make a camera that ends up in the best buy bargain bucket again, like the A700. There simply isn't a market for this type of camera, perhaps the A77 will have more success thanks to the unique features of the SLT.
