Sony Alpha A700Shutterbug have reviewed the new 12 megapixel Sony Alpha A700 Digital SLR – it’s the second model released by Sony, after the A100 was released after the take-over of the Konica Minolta digital SLR division, and as such is the new version of the 7D. The A700 features a 12.2 megapixel CMOS sensor, alpha lens mount, a weather resistant body, super steady shot (anti-shake sensor), dust reduction system, 5fps, 11 point focus, 3″ screen, and dynamic range optimiser. The A700 is available for £859 with kit lens:

“Particularly in Extra Fine JPEG or raw capture, image quality is outstanding at ISO 100-400, suitable for making gallery-quality 13×19” inkjet prints. Photos made without overrides exhibit rich colors, snappy contrast, high sharpness, and remarkable smoothness. Most of my friends considered the results to be “perfect” while a couple would have preferred just a hint of a “grain” for a more film-like effect.”
