Hi John,

That's the bit that scares me. The 700 is the most user friendly camera I have owned. Generally because of a neck injury and some added hassles weight is becoming a problem, so I am taking it with me less and less ( has Tokina 28 -70 ATX pro 2.8 that doesn't help ). I thought if AF was much better on the 57 that may outweigh some of the other things.

Thanks for the input,



I had the A700 for a long time. After I bought the A57, I sold the former because it was collecting dust. The A57 locks focus quick, lighter, better sensor as Marco said and others.
