After having my 7D break I got an Alpha A100. I really didnt like it and I sold the Alpha and got a new 7D and 3 year warranty earlier this year.



Now Sony had to come out with the A700 and it looks like its closer to what I wanted.



I ordered one that is shipping today from PCNATION for $1319.00 including shipping.

I wasnt going to try the Brooklyn camera scams.. even though they touted a cheaper, and certainly grey market or refurbished items.



I guess its time to put the 7D and all its goodies on EBAY...... except the lenses anyway....

Congrats! It's a nice camera.

That's also a good price. Mine was $1399. But, Ritz and Sonystyle were the only ones that had it when I got mine. As more vendors get them in, the prices should go down a little bit. I've never done business with http://www.pcnation.com before. So, let us know if it works out OK.

As for Ebay...Nah, keep the 7D as a backup body. ;-)

I know how that goes. My wife wasn't exactly thrilled when I told her I had an A700 on the way, either. Of course, I didn't exactly tell her until she asked what I'd spent the money on when she checked our bank account.

Then, it was more like "you spent $1400 on a camera?" in a not so friendly tone of voice. :-)

Hopefully, she won't get any ideas (i.e., want me to sell my KM 5D). lol

Just tell her the 5D won't fetch much these days. Based on what I've seen on EBay lately, looks like I hesitated too long on selling some of my equipment. I guess it's the fact that the A700 is out and seems to be a hit. The prices didn't budge much when the A100 hit the streets.

The A700 made it here, Im happy with it. I hated the A100 I had for a week or so.



I had to put the 7D on EBAY, I hope the 3 year warranty and the extra goodies get a decent price....



If not, the wife is gonna be pissed!

The A700 does not use the same battery as the A100. The A700 battery will work in the A100.
