a 350 is not a fair test

Hasselblad Jr.

If Sony had marketed this a bit differantly, I wonder what the perception would be.

I'm hoping the new full frame will be introduced at an unbelievable price, but I'm realistically expecting the price to be in the $3500 range. If so, the A350 would be a perfect companion to my A700, more so to me than a second A700.

Poor high ISO performance? So what. I'd expect a $30,000 Hasselblad to turn in similar poor high ISO images. For owners of the A350, if you're trying to shoot in low light, throw a flash on the camera. For the majority of your shots, be content that you have one of the best resolving cameras on the market, for a price they were charging for point and shoots mere months ago.

I am a licensed general contractor. I have 8 different pneumatic nailers, each perfect for the job intended. (I won't even mention the number of saws I have. ). A single tool seldom provides the best performance for all jobs. The A350 may not be the best camera on the market for everything, but for what it does well, it does very well.
