O.k. Im here in Hungary and I have seen a black body, and today a silver body.
Cant find any information today on the net about the silver body...just black, black, black.

Whats with the silver? Why is it not offered (well, with the exception of the one I found...) any links, info, or scoop on the rare silver model?


Peace

When the Alpha was introduced , the UK retailer Jessops sold all A100s with a silver finish.

Perhaps a special order at a special price?

You don't see them today though.

thanks...I might get it, as it appears to be $150 cheaper than at other locations. 167k forint vs. 200k forint.

Just last year it was 270 forint more than the canon 400d.
Now its the same price (at this location) as the canon 350d...and the latter is just 8 mp.

I may just get it, was curious if there would be an update...the other thing is I have seen some quality issues with sony recently on boards at dppreview (cant register there for some reason, but anyway).

the issues are from buttons falling off to antishake breaking.
Making me a little cautious and pondering whether to get sony or not.
The problem is, I love the way it feels, the groove for my finger...but the canons dont seem to break from what I read...guess I will wait and see.

Peace
