There is that red dot on the front of it too. That dot alone is worth at least $20,000USD :^)
Hah, so true! :^D

Ask admin, he paid 800$ for a 400$ Panasonic Lumix LX3 with this red dot on it.
I recently received this link to a photo taken at 1474 megapixels !!!
Definitely the technology does exist.
Any idea what size imager this is supposed to be in? I don't care if Sony makes a 100MP imager--if they keep to their 4/3rds imager form factor, it's still a 2.0x crop factor for us. The form factor we need is DX- or above. When it comes to crop-factor, light-gathering capability, and low-noise images, size DOES matter!
Okay, DUH! Now I see that Sony started introducing full-frame D-SLRs way back in 2008. Where have I been? I thought Sony announced they were discontinuing Maxuum-mount, Alpha cameras? The A900 and A850 are still on B+H's site.
Either way I can guarantee that the 1Ds mark IV will not be a superb solution to ISO noise. Many still think that the surprise sensor will show up in the D700x or D700 replacement. I'm positive the D4 will not come out until at least Feb 2011...
I hear the 5D Mark III will be released before the Nikon D700 refresh now. This should be an interesting release for everyone. Canon might fix all that in camera picture developement such as noise reduction, saturation and contrast. I always thought there was too much in camera developement going on. They might even fix the auto focus as well although I think its a lot better than what people say. The 5D Mark III, 1Ds Mark IV and new Sony 30+mp cameras will be huge determining factors for Nikon and their next FX release as far as specs and release dates.

??? The Sony Alpha mount is Minolta's old AF mount. Sony bought Minolta from Konica and just renamed the mount to "Alpha". You can mount old Minolta AF lenses to newer Sony cameras and new Sony lenses to older Minolta cameras.
The mount had actually been know as the Minolta Alpha mount or just A-mount. Sony just renamed it just Alpha and used the alpha symbol as their brand.
