    Specs are sooo cool that i can’t believe that Sony made camera like THAT.

    If it is true – then canonikon in that segment is dead.

      sony is pretty well known for on paper specification only tho

        Moreover pellix will suck some light coming trough the lens so the high ISO will be worse than Nikon cameras using the same sensor. I also doubt that EVFs will ever fully replace OVFs as seeing actual subject (not its projection) is very important to some.

        A850 is not only on specs good. It is miles away better then 5D MkII in everything xcept video

          A850 is only on specs good. It is miles away from 5d MKII in everything including video.

            A850 is kind of dog in apart from IQ. :|

    ISO6400′s noise just like a900′s ISO400 I guess this is a typo, it should read “ISO 6400″ both times.

      A900 sucked in high iso, if you haven’t noticed ;) IMHO it won’t be anything special – there are already cameras which offer this level of technological progress if you pixel-peep images.
