Is the a900 medium format? Check the side by side photo
Aug 6, 2011

Below is a real - not composite - photo of the a900 on the Left and the a55 on the right. There is quite a size difference - in fact the a900 is mammouth in comparison.

I do not know for sure if the a900 is MF or not and I never stated that either. All I bring out is that I have some doubt especially when looking at the comparison of the two cameras and the reasons for my doubt. It is hard to disregard what is seen. Regarding reports of Sony saying that it is full format - I cannot find the reference from the horses mouth. Perhaps someone will be kind enough to direct me to that.
To see a larger view of the photo just double click on it.

I will not be responding to further posts as I am not interested in making a battle of this idea. Do with it as you please.
