Re: Sony provides so much more!

Mike, I'm a long time Minolta/Sony user & Guidenet & I certainly have different views (although I would like to think that we respect each others opinions whilst we may not agree with them) but I have to side with him in at least some of these - we currently have no easy access to things like a 17mm or 24mm Tilt Shift (hopefully the coming Samyang will cure that) or a 400/2.8 (although there is a rumour that Sony have 1 in development) & the fact that you don't know that doesn't help your argument.

Of course we do have our own advantages in that our wides are stabilised by SSS whereas few Canon or Nikon wides with wide apertures are & yes, Sony bodies tend to offer more features at the same price point.

Plus, I strongly suspect that the exotics mentioned probably aren't of much interest to the OP in the first place.
