Pros:general ergonomics with controls identical to the previous A700, improved battery consumption and durable resolution technologically ahead of everyone when he went out; proprietary Sony function for standardizing high and low lights already in recovery, full compatibility with all the optics Minolta AF, but above all the presence as sensors of the sensor, which makes stabilized any goal
Cons:not happily used over ISO 1250/1600, no live view, no flash function remote with flash Minolta HSD, yes with those branded Sony.
Opinion:bought new in 1400 paid shipped abroad via San Marino but Italian seller, instead of 1800 as a cost, I do not feel need to change it, having also the new Sony Alpha SLR line the new translucent mirror technology that goes very well with the video but not so well with the traditional photo. I have added a A700 found 240 used to sent, but really like new, that having the sensor APSC I becomes very useful, as well as the second body, also for the crop on the optical telephoto 1.5x
Pros:Excellent dynamic range of up to 800/1600 ISO, professional construction and ergonomic design, large and bright viewfinder, fast AF with SSM goals, great price used, high print resolution, dual memory slots.
Cons:LV No, no HD video, presence of electronic noise> ISO 1600, nearly impossible to find.
Opinion:The a850 is presented as the second Sony FF that Sony has produced in 2009. It is a good reflex and behaves very well in almost all occasions, belonging in extreme low light where the files are already visible noise at ISO 1600. It is excellent with professional lenses with SSM and Carl Zeiss objectives, which provide for landscape pictures, theater and studio made exceptional. Another very positive note is that you can get it used at a very low cost (1300-1400 €), and a FF is not a trivial matter. We hope that the main defects, absence of LV, HD video and electronic noise also due to the time that has been put on the market, the new FF are improved from the A99, which should in theory leave at the end of this year.
