Re: Got myself a cheap A700

Congrats on a nice purchase.  I got lucky and scored an A700 a while back, and like yours, I suspect it was never used.  I justified the purchase as a "back up" to my A99, but in reality I just wanted to try and experience the A700.  It felt like an extension of my Maxxum 7D, with similar controls and layout, but twice the resolution (12mp vs 6mp).

Several months later I had to send my A99 in for a repair, right before a scheduled vacation, followed by my a soccer game for one of my kids.  The "back up" A700 went with me on the vacation and to the soccer game.  After using it for the vacation photos, soccer game, and for the subsequent week, I was seriously impressed with it's capability.  I still have it today.
