Now I heard two rumours...

1.- Maybe Sony will launch 2 bodys, one FF high resolution (24Mpx) and ISO limited to 6400 and 5fps and a second body FF about 14-16Mpx, high ISO (12800) and 8-10fps.

2.- Maybe the same body and same sensor would be 24Mpx, ISO 6400 and 5fps and adjustment resolution to 12Mpx, ISO 12800 and 10fps.

Sony never announced the a200, a300 and a350 like a700 or the flagship and is likely that Sony launch 2 bodys FF...

Sure hope so.. But i won't be buying either anyway. I will be sticking to my a100 for a long time until it is really broken. Now I have to buy more lenses

I'd buy the 14-26mp just for the 10fps.

I think the Sony FF camera will be a 24mp with bayer interpotalion.. at a lower resolution (8mp+) the camera will function like a normal camera with 3cmos sensors by combining 3 pixels into 1 pixel. that way... i can get great high ISO at a lower res but high res for landscape detail.

Cross_lane, you say a Foveon sensor...

Sony use Bayer design and Sony work not with interpolation.

This sensor has 25.5 total Mpx, 25.2 efective Mpx and 24.8 active Mpx...

Years ago J. Gordon Holt of Stereophile stated that "Who cares how long a product lasts if it doesn't sound good?" My rebuttal (esp. applicable to Sony) stated "Who cares how good it looks or sounds if it always quits working early on?"

I've had a 90 pct. failure rate on Sony products - not as bad as Hewlett Packard, but still bad. I wouldn't complain if it were just a dozen items - it's more like 30 or 40, going back at least 25 years. And their Vaio computers are merely the latest bad examples.

Well, I do not...

This (when I am write) notebook is a VAIO from my wife and my desktop for my bussines is a VAIO too with a monitor LCD of 22" and is TV too...

I have the a100 and a700 and I never have led the technical service.

My compact camera is a H3, a excellent camera, but I want more wild angle and will change it for a W170.

My main TV in the livinroom is a Bravia, I have about 1 and half year with it, without problem.

The MP3 player of my uncle is a Sony Walkman and its performance is very well, and more cheap that iPod.

The problem with Sony products is relative, I never have had problem with some product and its quality is very good...

No offence but i don't think any of us here get 90% failure because of a camera. I suggest you(dalethorn) check your technique. If your technique is wrong even a EOS 1D MKIII or a Nikon D3 won't help....neither would a hasselblad. I get a 60% sucess on my A100.. even with the slow focus speed.

I have not experienced any troubles with Sony products either, the last long if you use them well. Maybe that caused the 90% failure issue you talked about.
This is a little off topic btw.
