Congrats on getting an A700. Ditto for the Bigma (it's well liked by Sony dSLR owners).

It looks like you're off to a great start with this kit. As for DRO, yes, it can increase noise levels significantly (since it's "pushing" the exposure in darker areas of the image). So, if it brightens an area by 2 stops when you're shooting at ISO 800, you'd have roughly the same visible noise in those portions as you'd get in an ISO3200 shot. ;-)

I try to make sure DRO is turned off whenever I'm shooting at higher ISO speeds (although I forget from time to time and regret it). lol
