Dave, have you used and tried the a900 personally?

I think you'd be surprised if you did. I mean, since when did video become a 'must have' feature on a DSLR? Who's going to really use it the way it could be used? People are complaining about a 24MP image and how much space that's going to take up, have they seen how much space a 5DII HD 15 second video clip takes?

I understand that you personally don't like Sony (the company itself) and that's your right but don't write off this excellent camera so quickly. As a landscape guy I would MUCH rather have an image stabilized sensor than clean 3200 ISO (even though 3200 is pretty clean IMO). Each to his own - but like I said, you should try one of these babies out before being too critical, all the FF cameras (including the amazing 5D) are great, great cameras and they all serve slightly different purposes which is even better for the consumer don't you think?
