They're missing a dial on the top though.

On a serious note, without the quick adjustment dials that made the 7D such a easy-to-use camera, I'm afraid this will finalize my decision to jump over to Canon. If I'm stuck with a menu button interface, I'd rather shoot with a Canon 5D body.

This was everything I feared when Sony bought Minolta's assets...it's only a matter of time before we see typical 'Sony Quality' as well. Meanwhile, Canon keeps innovating...maybe I can get a reasonable percentage of what I invested in the Minolta glass.

What a waste. Sigh.

I think the pictures are of mock-ups, and don't represent the final form of Sony's eventual products. They probably just wanted something to display so people would know that they're serious about the dSLR market.

And remember that, along with Canon and Panasonic, Sony makes the best professional video cameras available. They may make a few false starts, but I think someday soon, Sony will also make some of the best professional dSLRs available too. And with Carl Zeiss lenses, how could they not?

I'm thinking you're right. They may just be some body models that were proposed at one time or another. The aperature blades appear to be closed. And if I were going to throw something out there just to show I was serious, I don't know that I'd put the final model out. Why let every one Cannon, Nikon, etc... know the direction I'm heading.

That's why when Detroit wants to road test next year's models, they put false body panels over the real sheet metal.
