It's a good replacement for the bajonet of the P700/7100, the latter having too much backlash at my P7100.

I will certainly try to see if it can be coupled with the 2x teleconverter that I used with A650.

Have you noticed any serious issues with chromatic abberrations on P7700 or anything else with the IQ?

Specifications-wise this camera looks just great to me. I cannot compare it directly with my A650, but based on samples that I have seen online I am guessing it is about 2 stops better in high-ISO performance. Coupled with the 1 stop faster lens this should really make a difference in low light performance. I am hardly waiting for the local dealer to get hold of it so I can try it out on my own. Should be next week...

kind regards
