The feedbacks from so many users of this camera is a clear testament of how good it is as a photographic tool. I Problems: None. Live view probably will make this camera even better.

I own 2 A-700 They both have the same problems and Sony service hasn't been able to fix them. When you preview the pictures on the camera it goes into a slide show with all of the pictures on the memory card. I shoot at a car race track and take thousands of pictures.

+ Sturdy aluminum chassis/magnesium body with superior environmental sealing (although not waterproof like Pentax); built like a tank!!! + Somewhat heavy & bulky, yet lightweight when compared to Nikon D300/D300s, Canon 40D/50D, or Pentax K10D/K20D counterparts; thanks to its great ergonomic shape, can certainly fit most hands like a glove! + Clean albeit deep interface, TWO WHEELS plus many handy buttons (DofF, ISO, preference settings), a huge bright optical viewfinder (Pentaprism) + No ...

This is an excellent camera. Tough. Fast. Simple. Reliable. This camera is extremely fast and responsive at 5 frames per second and minimal lag time from recording to reviewing. The shutter sound is also music to my ears. It has user-friendly controls, wonderfully placed buttons, and a very well laid-out interface. It also has a beautiful lcd screen. I will repeat, a beautiful screen. It makes reviewing and correcting your shots right in the middle of the field very easy and convenient. Other ...

Bought this camera in the end of March 2009 as an upgrade to my A300. Absolutely love it for the size and build and it is even more comfortable with the vertical grip. Images by default are slightly softer compared to my a300 but that is a CCD vs CMOS thing. Would have loved to have lens micro adjust like in the A900 and competitor D300. LiveView would have been nice to has as well for those macro moments! Problems: So far all is good at almost 20k shots. Still looks like the day I bought it.

I bought this camera at first release - up from Dynax 7D. I use the vertical grip and with this it is a fantastic setup. It is easy to use with a well thought out menu system. Picture quality is really good - especially RAW. With it, I bought the Carl Zeiss 16-80mm zoom lens. This really shows the camera off to its best. The images are so sharp it's more than I expected. Overall, it's a proper camera buff's camera. Live View? - dont need it, its quick to review pics via histogram or via the ...

For the current price, the Sony a700 is the best camera on the market. The CMOS sensor combined with the features and the layout of the controls (the BEST of any camera on the market at this price and even if you paid $1,000 more). The AF speed is superb, and the layout of the controls is extremely useful, particularly compared to other Brands. A couple of things that could have made this camera even better would be one more customizable button. Also, I'm not crazy about the Sony software, ...
