Re: why not for Pentax?...indeed very sad

It is true that Sony's marketing strategy can be extremely frustrating for the A-mount customers. I love my A850 and would have liked Sony to continue producing excellent OVFs. But I have to admit that SLTs + EVFs can, in some particular situations, have some significant advantages (exposition in critical situations, focus peaking). I have not really been excited by my A77 (very noisy high ISOs, single card slot, no CF card…), but for macro, this may just be the best option available on the market.

I hope I will be able to get one of these Tamron 150-600 for Sony A-mount before this summer. If not, I might just continue shooting with my Sigma 100-300 f:4 for a couple of years and keep the $1000+ in my wallet for something else.
