I intentionally did not upgrade to any of the already-in-market Alpha bodies since there were signs that Sony would be introducing new series of different levels. The A700 is at a good price in Istanbul at the moment and the A900 is down to a more reasonable price also and the features for both of the cameras have their attractive sides but since there are new bodies to be offered rather soon I'll be considering every single one until I make decisions to further my Alpha investment.

Naturally, I developed a more suspicious approach to the whole system but somehow I never suffered any of these problems with my A100. The A100 has its own limitations of high ISO but it never gave me any worries at all. This may be because I have a good sample and I already shot 15,000 and more photos with it and there still are no signs of degradation or failure or any signs of wear-and-tear on the body. I take care of it but it is still in the same good condition it was the day I purchased it.

But whatever will make you happy with your photography and road trips to different destinations in general will be part of your life, there's no doubt about that. Hopefully, history will not repeat itself with the other brands you may be going with.
