Not ready for prime time? Hardly

The Alpha 900 team was at PhotoPlus last week, and they let an
interesting tidbit slip... They claim that they convinced the sensor
division at Sony (the folks at PhotoPlus were camera designers) NOT
to sell the A900 sensor to anyone, in order to build Sony's camera
market share.

Having seen some of the reviews of the Alpha, I imagine they need to
do everything they can to build market share. So far the Alpha seems
to be not quite ready for prime time. For example, my understanding
is that you cannot turn off noise reduction, even in raw mode, so
there is no possibility of using anyone else's NR algorithm.

Not true about the NR as others have pointed out. Also I expect a firmware upgrade in the future to address the weak JPG processing. Not ready for prime time? You might want to look at this thread: http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1037&message=29849718
