I second the motion!  I would do that deal in a minute.  My 850 has been the best camera I've ever owned.

Great quality and you have the lenses to bring that out.

Last year I took a really bad spill with my 850.  Tore the lens hood off of my ZA 24-70 and broke the polarizer, and the body got a couple really bad scrapes, down to bare metal.

But the lens and camera still work perfectly and I was able to fix the lens hood too.  I used a sharpie to color in the body scrapes and now I don't even notice them anymore.  And my hospital stay was only 3 days.

I know my A55 wouldn't have been around anymore after a fall like that.

Good luck with your decision.
