    I'm a Sony cam guy and I'm still plugging along with my T-Rex A900 with a ZA 135/1,8 and most recently, the ZA 50/1,4. My last trip to Italy with those two lenses was brutal at my age. For those of you familiar with fast-glass from Carl Zeiss you know full-well how much they can weigh on an A-Mount. Frankly, I can't imagine ever hauling around that set-up on vacation ever again.

    Conversely, I'm not crazy with 'here today and gone today' camera models by Sony. Yes I know, they offer the most advanced products in terms of sensors and such, but it's simply more than I can handle. I mean, a model you buy today is very likely to be, not only obsolete, but discontinued the following year! Good luck trying to find service should the need arise.

    I have been a canon guy for some time now but after seeing some of the picture quality from some of these sony cameras I must say its worth looking at again .

    Hi Andrew,
    I know I was on my rant but I'm sticking with Sony nevertheless. In fact, as long as my Alpha-900 continues to work, I'm happy! However, I will definitely be looking at something else for travel. As it is, I prefer more deliberate photography here on the home front, or sanitized venues whereby I have the time and conditions to set things up. I shoot 90% from a very good tripod for all the right reasons.

    I am interested in finding out how the video auto-focus and audio inputs on this device works. I hope it has ND filters and gradual F-stop or ISO controls without being too visibly evident.

    That's has to be one of the best produced video commercials I've ever seen. While I still prefer the A-Mount, I'm quite impressed with what I'm seeing.

    Oh, so now that I finally buy a Canon HF-G30, I need to get a Sony instead?
    Please direct all questions for me to the forum so that all can benefit.

    The Canon HF-G30 is great and you save 1000$. If you are using the Canon HF-G30 for blogs or podcasting reasons, it is more than enough.
