A900 in my possesion
« on: October 22, 2008, 07:14:30 AM »
:D

Well it was for 3 minutes LOL

It wasn't a tough decision to hand it back, $4499 for the A900 body only.

Yeah and I held Catherine Zeta Jones once ... well her picture anyway. :P :D

So how was it Baldy? Did you get to play with the buttons and dials?

I had a play with one in Jessops (Manchester) the other day - I didn't want to give it back.

Tried it with the 70-300 G lens - the SSM was FAST and v.quiet.

Camera itself was excellent to hold and that viewfinder - simply superb!

All I've got to do now is scrape together £2.5k or so (or wait for the prices to fall)!

Cheers,

I had a play with one yesterday at the Sony shop UK. They put a 85mm CZ on it... you do need the best glas available. Not a bit difference to the A700 from the feeling at least not for me.

Love to say i did Clive but no, it was just a quick grab & run but then I had to reluctantly hand her back as my shoulder was hurting from my arm being twisted up my back and my head hurt from the blows ... :D

One thing i have found out, i can't run as fast as i used to :D :D :D
