RANTING on!!!

So far it's only been a rumor, until SONY makes the official announcement... sigh ...

This is NOT the direction that I had in mind when I chose SONY over NIKON 5 years ago with the intro of the A100. Yes the SLT maybe the wave of the future but while the EVF is nice in the A33 that I just bought for me father, it doesn't compare to the 100% live view of the A900...

EVF is nice compared to the 75%or 85% dimly lit penta mirror OVF but pales to the true PENTA PRISM OVF.

I have a LOT of gear I'll be selling off, SONY don't force this issue, look at NIKON's solution they have a better hybrid EVF/OVF at least on paper...

Why is it this difficult to have a two tiered system? EVF for the low end to mid level bodies and the OVF for upper mid to high end (pro line)...

From the minds of Minolta to the imagination of Sony, Alpha, like no other.
