Sony α700

The buzz on the next offering from Sony is in full swing now. Check out this post on the upcoming announcement, which I think is in Korean. Based on what I can translate with a little help from Google, it says the key features include:

  • APS-C CMOS (1.5X Crop) Sensor
  • Sony’s new Bionz image processor
  • Improved AF speed and efficiency
  • 5.5 frames per second
  • 1/8000s shutter speed
  • Up to ISO 6400
  • 3″ LCD Display
  • Super Steady Shot (in-body IS)
  • Weather-sealing

Announcement should be very soon. There’s plenty of buzz that Sony will announce on September 5th or 6th (apparently, at a press conference in the UK). The Korean site linked above mentions a availability date in November – not unlike the Nikon D300.
