Re: Bad news, for many, that Alpha 700 replacement will ......

I use both the sony A850 and a Panasonic G1.

I have no problem using a EVF or LCD screen to compose my images.
In fact, I prefer the live 100% LCD view over a OVF when working on a tripod.
The thought of a FF camera with LCD live view would be very tempting to me.

What I am hesitant about is the translucent mirror scheme. Perhaps if it was user replaceable when it gets too dirty to clean perfectly.

What will happen if salty air while shooting on a beach gets on the mirror? What will it do in extreme cold or humidity?

I know Sony designed this new system to get blazing frame rates and great video to compete with C&N. Sweep panorame would not be possible otherwise.

I'm just a little concerned over light loss and another surface between the lens and sensor to collect dirt.
