Default Re 707 or 5700

I had the same problem deciding which to go for,I did many extensive tests,and after all I went for the F707 Why?

Carl Zeiss lens
Very Good low light(hologram)AF.Nikon is awful
Menu is not complicated like the Nikon 5700
Image Quality better than the Nikon
Manual Features are easy to get too,some of the Nikon are hidden in the menu.
Battery life is brilliant.The Nikon`s is not
Manual Focus ring.
Better Night pictures.
No hot or stuck pixels on any of Sony CCD.
Look on Steves samples of the Nikon 5700,stuck pixel on high shutter speeds.
The Sony is not a clumsey camera,I`ve tried both and personally I prefer the Sony.
The only downside on the Sony is some of the colours can seem a bit too saturated,the hot shoe,and the memory stick,which I understand that by the end of the year,we`ll have a 1gig stick

I thought long and very,very,very hard before I made my choice,dont get me wrong I DO like the Nikon,but weigh the pros and cons of each and I think the Sony is a all round better performer,OK you may like a 8x zoom,but thats a matter of personal oppinion.Try both cameras before you decide.
