Re: Congratulations!

Thanks Sal, seems the only ones happy with Sony are Canon users. Maybe it's just the nature of photography, no matter what you have the other guys gear is better. I realize I could be in the same situation but for now at least, I'm comfortable with my decision. It's clearly is not a change that I took lightly and i considered my options carefully. I looked at Sony first since not changing would be easiest. I wasn't comfortable putting $2500-3000 into the A850/900 given my read on Sony's direction. D700 was an option but I think it's too old a design. The 5D Mk ii is still a relatively new offering and seemed the best combination for my needs. It's odd but several respondents here seem to think they know what I need better than I do. Not likely, since they know very little of my shooting style, preferences etc. Anyway, the feedback here is free so I'll take much of it at face value.
Thanks again,
