Summary: Probably the best price per megapixel camera on the market (including the used market) there is. This one was exactly as advertised and provides a 24MP full frame camera at 1/2 to 1/3 of the going rate for new. Great deal. Mates well with the one I already had.
Summary: A wonderful camera. Well made, simple to use and reliable. It has an optical viewfinder which Sony no longer makes in the DSLR category- but I prefer it to the newer EVF. I am now using this camera almost to the exclusion of my others and have found no drawbacks to it's operation. Highly recommended.
Summary: As an a700 owner, I knew the ergonomics, button layout, and menu are what I like. The full frame sensor image quality is amazing with a noticeable step up in dynamic range. I have few 80’s Maxxum lenses that possess the pleasing aesthetic quality known as “Minolta Colors“. They are exceedingly robust with astounding craftsmanship and gain an additional exposure value with the a850 in-body image stabilization.
