Good call, Stan

Although I'd add these:

  • I actually do need the 36mp of the A7R for my serious shooting, so I'd want that bump up.
  • I'd want real live view and a screen that at least articulates like the A7R's plus the rez.
  • I could use the better focus aids of the A7R, at least on the screen if we stayed with an OVF.  The EVF of the A7R is awfully good, though...and of course it lets you change it with just some button pushes.
  • I'd like it to be as weatherproof as the best Pentax cameras.

But My A850 is definitely one of my favorite cameras ever, easily top 5 (and I wonder if the A7R will be..., a bit persnickety for my taste, although the size is kinda awesome...), in what's getting close to 50 years with cameras.
