Re: Price?

I stated a while ago (before Xmas) that Sony would come out with 2 cameras soon. A full frame one (but I think it will be more a 1.05 just to allow Steady Shot room to work) with around 20MP priced below a D2X or $4000) with the "old" and "improved" 1/300 Seiko shutter and filmlike presets on JPEG like Fujichrome 50 or even Kodachrome 25. This would be to use and expand their excellent range of full frame lenses, why would they bother to have them for the A100? This camera would trump any 1Ds (or D) MkIII by a long shot pricewise and featurewise.

Another camera should be based on the D200 market section, hard to say if it is an improved KM7D, or even a new concept with the same "full-frame" as the Alpha1 to target the commercial success of the Canon 5D at a D200 price.

The thing is for certain, a news sensor is out soon and I think Sony will use it first and then give it to Nikon too.

So far there is no need to replace the A100. It is doing very well thank you very much.
