that I went out and finally got an A900 today from Currys for £1,599 (they only had two left in stock at their Fulham megastore and the website said that Currys were completely out of stock). I had been thinking about waiting for the A77? but decided it probably won't be out until the new year and if it is with the translucent mirror I would probably then wait six months for user feedback before buying it. Then I kept seeing the colours in David's recent photos, and Stef's and Rob's over the last year and decided to commit to the 900
I don't suppose there are any A900 users out there who bought the vertical grip but don't really use it and might be thinking of selling it?
