Had my Sony A900 for 5 days already, still taking my time to figure this new baby out.  Though it much resemblance the A700, there are still some adjustments to be made.  Will post up some test shots later in the week.  Word on the street is that Sony is officially launching the A900 tomorrow in Hong Kong.

Camera labs just posted up a thorough review on the A900, click here for the read.

Not that I really like the format, but I really like the idea of posting up pics and having background music to it. Great in a way to share your works and thoughts together with your favourite tunes with your readers.

Still working on it and figure it will take couple weeks before I can set it up.

In the meantime, still waiting on my Sony A900 to get here.  Luckily on Thusday. What’s after that is probably the SONY 70-200/f2.8.  Going broke this month defintely.

Yet another first look video on the Sony A900.  I know, I know, I’m going nuts waiting on mine.  Latest news is that Sony will have them on the 16th October, 9 more days to go. Woot.
