Thats sounds believable, for me that is enough of an upgrade, even i no more features would come with it. I now have the 5D with my DIY-verticalgrip and the new body with dedicated verticalgrip is already over 50% of the reason for my upgrade :) (the rest is lack-of-feature and blackframe stuff that plagues my 5D)
Well, it looks like we might see something really soon.

Now...what did I tell you? I was certain the press release would be when I don't have access to Internet. On September 4th, I'll probably be in the middle of nowhere, on my way to a small fisherman's village in Norway :)

Looking forward to the 4th! It will end speculation of teh AA model, and probably kick off seculation on the semi-pro one.

Now don't go lol-ing on us... that's not fair! Or at least point your lol at a specific thing, otherwise we won't know what you're reffering to :)

But as far as I know, the AA model is called A700, which denotes a '7' series.

Don't count on it. As much as Sony wanted to leverage Minolta heritage early on, they seem to want to break with their naming conventions now.

Well, better AF and better ISO performance would very much make this a highly attractive camera to me :) The rest (weather seals and more MP is just a - welcome - bonus!)

Faster AF, FF, low noise on high ISO and some decent FPS will make me happy.
