Yes, I saw the pre-production model already. Could this make or break for Sony? They are betting on the PS3 with their blue ray technology next generation DVD and now betting on the digital SLR market which is mostly dominated by Canon and Nikon. Can they survive?

First, we have Konica and Minolta, then they became Konica Minolta and finally Sony bought the whole camera business over in 2005. As a result, you have a hybrid Minolta-Sony camera here.

Will this be a good investment to challenge in the digital SLR camera world? Time will tell! Definitely, it will provide more competition to Nikon and Canon. This is good for the industry! I am always a big fan of Sony products and I will watch this camera real closely! Hope it will be splendid for the competition!

For those of you who has no faith in Minolta lenses, well, no worries, Carl Zeiss will also be creating two for starters so this is an interesting wait to see how this baby will fair in the competition! This is like an alliance of 4 building a camera.

Some features of this camera:
-10.2 Megapixel APS-C-sized CCD sensor
-Setting (Auto, 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600, Lo 80, Hi 200)
