Sony Alpha 700 DSLR announced
Sony has today released information about their new 12 megapixel DSLR, the A700. This camera is aimed at what Sony calls advanced amateurs and serious photo enthusiasts and sports a CMOS sensor with built-in hardware noise reduction and sensor-based image stabilization. The Sony Alpha line is based on the Minolta lens mount so some legacy Minolta lenses will work with this camera. It remains to be seen how this camera will stack up to the Nikon D300 which uses a similar sensor, but has a very different body and design.
