Bad news

Hmm, DK makes it sound like there will be no OVF a700 successor EVER, so not just an issue of no successor THIS YEAR - if so, that's pretty disappointing. Also interesting how he seems to make more of the translucent mirror and ghost imaging issues than any review site does - and i have a lot of respect for him. If stock agencies pixel peeping at 100% view (e.g. Alamy) reject a55 and a77 images for ghosting this is a real downer - I guess we'll have to wait and see.

I'm not desperate to upgrade my a700 but the thought that EVF or full frame are the ONLY options, isn't great. And this is coming from an EVF fan (R1 and Pannie G1 owner) - I still like my OVF in my main rig.
