Is a A850/A900 still a good buy today?

You can't spend your money and have it

The A900 and A850 are a couple of years old now, but high-end cameras don't have a six-month life cycle. It is likely that Sony will introduce a full frame model within a year or two, but even after that, if the A900 meets or exceeds your needs today, it probably will tomorrow as well (and by "tomorrow" I mean "two years from now").

Of course, if Sony should release a new, improved A900 within a few months of your eventual purchase, you will probably feel you wasted a lot of money on yesterday's technology, but it's always going to be like that with electronics.
