I just posted the complete Sony press release with info about the new MS Pro and MS Select media:

Good news for Cyber-shot F717 owners, these cameras can use both the original and new Pro sticks !

Good to hear Sony didn't just release MS Pro w/o having some products on the market that secretly suported it already :-)

... Still someone must have his brain clouded in Sake by coming up with this scheme: One has to remove the card 1st to flip the switch and then re-insert... what's wrong with just switching for another card (it's probably cheaper) :lol:

$879 for 1G? one can buy 3 microdrives for that price... or another camera!
