Just remember, the A900 is the start of a very slippery slope; you'll soon find you 'need' a CZ 16-35 or CZ 24-70 for it...:-)

It most certainly is a fun ride :D

I remember reading somewhere (when I just had the 700) that if I didn't want a big hole in my wallet I shouldn't look through the viewfinder of the 900... so I went and had a look :-) :-)

Yep, thats what got me as well, looking through the viewfinder.
The A700 just doesnt feel the same afterwards.

Though as mentioned, the A900 does require good glass to getthe best from it.

I have lately re-discovered my love for my A700 and use it more. Yes there are huge advantages with the A900 but as I have said a couple of times before it is a different beast of camera and for me not one that I want to use to shoot hundreds of images where I don't need the size. The Jpegs of the A700 are just outstanding while the A900 "must" be used in raw to get the best out of it. So it really depends on your needs!
