Looks like a MF/AF switch to me, similar to the one on the A-100 and KM5D I guess, if we talk about the same thing.


The bodies look like the A-200, a bit of a bummer, I like manual flash opening so much ^^

No...not that switch, right underneath it (and slightly to the front,dunno how to explain it) there's a lever-like thingie. My A100 doesn't have that. Or maybe it's just a body-design thing.


EDIT- Mmmm... nope, my bad. There's nothing there. I just checked the A200 pics and the design around the mount is the same, so... no extra lever.

That wasn't visible in the first group of photos before the larger ones were posted. Although the '4' is just Photoshopped onto the A300 image, I agree that it does indicate a specification. But it's been known for a while that the A300 would include an articulating LCD, so no real news there.

Well, that'd be a design-thing to me cezarL ^^

Also, looking at the 1st and 3rd pix consecutively, the pix are the same, only the MP logos changes (but, that doesn't matter).

Hmm...so perhaps the A350 is just a A300 with an extra 4 megapixels like the Nikon D40x compared to the D40. The thing is, it never makes any difference! You just get worse Noise values!
-Yes sir, it has a 12mp CMOS sensor, ISO6400 capability, 11 point autofocus, HD capability, Live-view, SSS, one of the most technologically advanced...-Great, and how do you load the film?

It makes a difference to people comparing cameras on paper... 14.2 > 12, thus sony > canon :)

Don't hurt your eyes and searching for differences between these two bodies; aside the "MP advertisement" you may not find anything else :)

Hopefully, it will be more than that. I want a real alternative to the A700 (which is a tad too expensive for my taste and needs). If what these cameras (and especially A350) bring above A200 is just Live-View (and more noise on the 14mp sensor), then... it's not enough for me :(

A noticable difference between the A200 here is that in the rear shot, there is a third button on the right hand of the grip that wasn't there on the A200.

By the end of this I think we'll all be needing a +5 prescription!

A-300: same CCD than A-200 most likely

A-350: CCD or CMOS ?

I'm sure sony learned from the Noise debacle of the A100. Do you think they'd make the same mistake? It's a pixelrace out there and Sony wants a piece of that cake. That's understandable, don't you think?
