For instance, the a100 does not have live view. This means you can not see the composition until after the shot. If you get a full spectrum conversion and use IR filters in front of the lens that solves the composition problem, but you are always taking off and putting back on the filter. With an internal IR conversion, a/f can recalibrated for IR and you won't need an IR lens filter, but you can't see what you're shooting because of the internal IR filter unless you are shooting the sun. So, that being said, if the a700 doesn't have live view, then the same applies for it. It's not impossible to use an a100 for IR, but there are plenty of cameras that are much easier. Just my $.02. Others might disagree.

I have few good MA lenses and not in a particular mood to add any. But
your second link piqued my curiosity. Let see what it say. After all LL is
is always lurking beneath somewhere...
