Sony Alpha 700 DSLR Camera

Details of the new Sony Alpha 700 have finally been released, revealing a mid-range digital SLR that could be a notch better than Canon’ EOS 40D.

Its slightly larger CMOS image sensor, which measures 23.5 x 15.6 (against the 40D’s 22.2 x 14.8mm) records 12.2 megapixels compared to the 40D’s 10.1 megapixels.

The Alpha 700 also sports a 921,000-dot/307,200-pixel LCD like the Nikon D300. Don’t let the 921K-dot spec confuse you, it’s just their fancy way of saying they have a better VGA screen.

The new camera has a list price of $1,399 body only; $1,499 with an 18-70mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens.

Although the details were finally released only today after several days of speculation and ‘leaks,’ DPReview has actually had the camera for a good two weeks now and they have a hands-on review ready for all to peruse.
