A Sony DSLR is the only obvious choice you can make. I use Minolta Maxxum lenses instead of the Sony kit lenses because I feel that they are superior. Your existing lens collection makes the choice of buying an Alpha body a no brainer.

How can you lose by moving into a Sony DSLR! You already have everything you need as far as lenses and accessories are concerned. Good move!

That's exactly what I thought after reading your kind comments, thanks for your time!

So I went to some electronic shop that had their grand opening yesterday (oh my, the crowd), and there it was... Taking the A850 into my hands, looking through the eyefinder, releasing the shutter... I fell in love with that beast!
So now I'm a proud owner of an A850!

Done a few trial shots with, so far I'm pretty impressed. The AF is much faster and less error proned than on my old KM 7D, and the light exposure is much more accurate as I had the impression that the 7D got fooled quite easily.

Can't wait for next weekend's trip to Paris!

Congratulation on getting the A850 which is the best deal on a full-framed DSLR. Have fun shooting in Paris!
