I don't see a need to upgrade from A700...yet

Re: Here...here Walt!

Only a true pentaprism OVF DSLR replacement for the a700 with the newer sensor tech and software would interest me. ie an improved camera for still photography, and not compromised by video requirements as the a77 will certainly be.


I am not a video guy but, I don't knock those who want that option in a DSLR. I'd rather have a better optioned and performing still camera. I'd prefer to have any physical space in a camera body, devoid of video related mechanics, used for improved still performance. Maybe I am too much of a purist in this regard? If I were interested in video I'd buy a camcorder.
