Chris P. I use both DX [ APS Sensor] and FX, but mostly DX because the majority of my Nikkors are DX! Yep, I attended a show/lecture in Dubai some years back now, given by some big brass from Nikon, and at which they said, that they had no intention of producing a full frame DSLR Camera!! As a result of this, I off loaded / sold a few of my old Nikkors so that I could purchase DX replacements, after all they were lighter,newer and shiny!! Lots of regrets now  :(
So, Back to Sony, have you read this? A900 sure!:-

And I read the follow up, to antartica, when the 5dii were basically baggage, so many broke...

The A900 broke so many barriers on release (Nikon feel that shoving a body around the same sensor warrants £3500 of your earth pounds), and hopefully, the A850 will bring the prices down lower. Because if it hits £1300-1400 within a couple of months, will video be enough for aps-c gear to warrant that price range?
