Interesting ... me too. Last fall and winter I dumped it all and shoot Panny bodies now.

I've very pleased with the F900, use it primarily in raw mode set to EXR/SN, which is their nomenclature for binning two pixels into one, resulting in a 8mp camera.

One comment on SN ... because the pixels are combined 2:1 instead of blended on a curve, you get slightly better high ISO than you would with DR400 for example. But you also lose EXR dynamic range extension. I.e. you lose the highlight protection you normally expect from EXR.

Just something to ponder ...
