SONY's Video capable DSLR
a little late to the party, but now all those who bolted to the Canon 7D ... can get on the return bus and adopt the just-introduced MP SONY ?560 (<- click on this) as their Optical View Finder (OVF) movie-making career move. The 16MP version, the ?580 will be released soon.
But what really has the world abuzz is the Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) SLT-?33V and SLT-?55V Translucent Mirror Technology® DSLRs ... which locks the sensor safely and dust-free behind a NON-MOVING optically semipermeable (pellicle) mirror and allow it to shoot at 10-frames-per-second. A staggering improvement in sports shooting for a very, very reasonable price. Almost everyone can nail "little Johnny" as he crosses the finish line ... and blow by the competition! With an ISO 25600 ... this is a speed enhancement like never before. And, of course, internally stabilized 1080/60i HD video thrown in.
Along with all the Alpha lenses, you can also couple it with the lower-cost 85mm f/2.8 DT ($249) and the 35mm f/1.8 DT ($199) ... you can get back on the train and significantly lower the price per image that you always wanted.
No other manufacturer is offering such variety in your DSLR photographic solution. Nearly as many cameras as there are Minolta/SONY lenses to mount on them.
