Summary: I have used this camera since 2008, both above water and in a housing to depths of 160 feet. I have gotten great pictures under a variety of conditions including a week of backpacking in Yellowstone Park.
Summary: My present camera is an A100 Sony.I waited quite a while before I decided on this camera as an upgrade. I reviewed several Sony models on CNET Reviews and this cameras filled my needs and was extremely well priced. Newer models did not offer anything I needed to do the job for me.
Summary: extremely pleased with this camera. especially combined with the sony lens 18-250 mm. recommend to upgrade to last fw asap. this did really improve some focus issues for me and overall image quality.
Excellent, class leading DSLR, but not perfect (what is?)

Summary: I have a Canon 5D and although it produces impressive pictures, I found too many of my pictures were blurred and I found myself not carrying my 5D around as it was a heavy camera (front heavy and hard to hold still IMHO) with the 24-105mm lens attached (hence the blurred shots).
Summary: Sony has fixed a few small items with the A-700. Battery meter is now there to see power levels. The ISO Wheel is gone, in favor of a drop down menu. Screen is larger for review. Ergonomic grip is improved. 12.2 MP is better for close cropping.

Pros: Way too many to mention in such a small space
Excerpt: After writing countless of camera reviews on here as well as on a few other review sites on many different types of point and shoot cameras and DSLR`s that I have used or tested I thought it might be about time to write a review on one of the more upmarket DSLR`s that I own and use in my business as...
