I bought the A900 again. This is my second one, my other was sold a long time ago when I got the A850. Found one like new in the box for 619.00 usd, and a 24/50 f/4 RS for 69 bucks.

Currently evaluating the A77II and A68, and a few lenses. Won't be keeping them but its nice to be catching up on all things A-Mount again.

The A900 is a solid camera and the best A-Mount before the A99/A99II appeared, I loved mine big time

I loved mine too. It was such a good camera. And I mean camera, in the sense of taking still images. It felt good in the hand. The viewfinder was wonderful. It took very nice images (at one has to concede, the lower ISOs). It also seemed so much sparing of batteries comparted to the new tech,

I get wanting one again. There's something about not being distracted by all the tech, and just going back to taking photos that appeals.

I enjoy my A900, there is a lot to like - but I do find myself wanting an EVF and an articulating screen. If anyone wants to swap for an A99 ....

I still keep my original a900, even though I have several newer cameras. I don't use it very much, but once in a while I pick it up and I must say it is a great joy to use!
It is amazing that this 11 years old camera is still very relevant, at least in terms of resolution and image quality.

I regret selling mine Carl, it was a brilliant camera. I love my A99 & A77ii, but it's hard to forget those super smooth images from my A900. It's a classic.

Good to see you catching up with A Mount again.
