I actually like most mushrooms too, which is kinda odd since I like fungus and not veggies.

Ah, olives... Not a big fan of olives... Green olives maybe...

Like mushrooms, I don't like mushrooms either... Weird texture...

Anyone here like mushrooms? Tomatoes?

Tomatoes are really the worst... My Grandmother would tell my cousins they would make their boobs bigger (they were all girls), and my father said they put hair on your chest... I never wanted a weird mix of the two... That and the texture is again... weird...

I like pickles, dill pickles...

Who here likes pickles? Groovyone, do you like pickles? I hope you do, I hope you like dill pickles, they are the best, all others are inferior if you ask me.

What are your favorite kind of pickles?

Much, much longer I'd imagine, although the conversation may not have gotten as sidetracked as this one.

When the original Canon 5D was announced, it too was a highly watered down version of the 1DSMKII, with a cheaper body, lower-grade structure, lower-end AF, lower-end mechanicals, lower-end view-finder, lower-end FPS, lower-end electronics etc., over the 1DSMKII.

However, what made it remarkable was not the fact that it was an inferior alternative to the 1DSMKII but the very fact that Canon was able to introduce a Full-frame camera at the then incredible price of $3200.

This new Sony on the other hand, is not in any way shape of form as "inferior" to the A900, as the 5D was to the 1DSMKII. And the 1/3 reduction in price is significant enough to "talk about for 40+ pages" for a lot of individuals who have wanted a Full-frame body but could not afford the price of entry till date. That is a BIG enough landmark for Alpha mount photographers.

Of course that still leaves a sour taste in the mouths of people who want a 12-14MP Full-frame, but I personally would not want to rain on the parade of others who are pumped up about the upcoming Full-frame camera and the expected introductory price, with very little reductions (or differences) over an existing Full-frame camera that is priced significantly higher.

My take is that Sony themselves have not even announced the product yet, let alone the pricing. So the dealers are also guessing and they have opted to "guess" at a high price (which can then be lowered after the product announcement) than "guess" at a low price, create a lot of anticipation and then have to raise the price (if the announced price is higher).

I personally think this camera will be a gamechanger from Sony and the entire industry.

A camera-maker like Nikon is the one who will be pressured the most by this announcement, since due to their major focus on the camera line, with relatively little breadth/depth in electronics, they will be forced to introduce a potential D700X at the $4000+ mark (extrapolating from the D3X price over the D3's price), which in turn would turn off a lot of Nikon shooters. Of course it will have some additional bells and whistles (including a superior AF and better metering etc) over the A850 but the body price will be a difficult barrier for a lot of folks to accept.

Canon might be pressured to lower the price of their 5DII and they will be squeezed too, even though due to their deeper exposure to the electronics business, their squeeze may not be as bad as for Nikon.

Remember that both Canon and Nikon are about to announce pretty bad financials for the year, with an expected annoucement of plant shutdowns and personnel reductions. This move from Sony is going to apply the squeeze, when the competitors are hurting badly and their stockholders are screaming for cost containment.

it shall be blow open the market

the meaning of sony , is that they want to make a an affordable FFcamera
and the price shall be in the biginning around 1450 euro ( 2100 USD)

as kit-lens SONY cannot the CARL-ZEIS 24-70 on it , the lens is more expencive than the A850

so there is a other new lens , the SAL 28-75 2,8 SAM . this is the kit-lens of the A850 , and this lens shall have a very nice price

i think This combination shall cost around 1750 euro`s ,and i think around christmas / beginning new year the body shall around 1300 euro , with the kit-lens around 1600 euro
