You should be aware that VERY FEW of these a900 users want to present an image comparison where the a700 beats it out or equals it. But it is a photography fact....you shoot with the lenses that you own and for many folks it is also a fact that they will need to spend some serious cabbage on new lenses to make the a900 a worthwhile upgrade for them. For me personally it would not be a 3K investment...it would be more like an 8K investment.

I have an A900 mainly because I had a set of lenses that made sense with a FF sensor and I was more interested in wide-angles.
I'm interested to know the tradeoffs at the telephoto end of the range. Long and fast lenses are expensive so you could add an APS-C camera to your kit rather than get another lens or TC. But you need to consider the option of cropping the A900 image.
I also expect the A700 to come out "better" in a comparison but this is just gut feeling based on no evidence.

I would happily give up APS-C for FF, any day of the week. Not sure about needing ultra high end optics, do we not hear about many happy 28-75mm f2.8 users? Not a pricey lens at all.
Really not convinced about the "tele shooters" argument either. Sounds more like Olympus 4/3 uses on a rant, than anyone else
APS-C is affordable, that's why it's popular, few would stick to it in preference to FF

Sonolta wrote:Henry, Carl is talking about the few extra mm and the resolution you pick up at the wide/ultra-wide end. For instance the Siggy 12-24 on FF provides a 12mm FOV and the Siggy 10-20 on APS-C only provides a 15mm FOV.
