Re: Minolta 7D finally died... A700 or is the A850 worth twice the price?

Thank you one and all for your replies!!!

Your comments and advice have helped me think through what is right for me, and I greatly appreciate all your help.

It's one of the things that make DPREVIEW so great.

I learned about the free fix for FBF, and my camera is on it's way to Precision.

Finally, I've decided to stay with the A700 for now. I very much take advantage of the 18-200 (effectively 27-300) zoom, especially in the longer end, and don't want to give that up at this time.

I will wait for the NEXT generation (3 or 4 years for me) to make the switch back to full frame.

THANK YOU!

Russ
