No....and I will give you one example.
Consider you are shooting a telephoto subject with the longest lens you have...say 300mm. Now consider that the 300mm lens on an APS-C camera is providing the same FOV as 450mm on FF. So...to get matching FOV's you will need top put the a900 in crop mode or crop some pixels from the full a900 frame.

Put video on it and I may have purchased it.
Put live view on it and I may have purchased it.
Put 6.5-11 FPS on it and I may have purchased it.
Put high ISO performance like the D3/D700 on it and I may have purchased it.
Or, leave the camera as it is, and in the $3K kit include 3 free Zeiss lenses, a new computer, a big fat drobo unit, and 48-64GB of top of the line CF and I might purchase it.
Enjoy your a900.

The A900 really is a beast. I have seen some samples in the past from different cities and the clarity of some of those city shots is really impressive.

Easy solution. Get your wonderful girlfriend to buy you one. That's what I did!
