    $2800 for the body only is affordable Roger? ; Can I have your job and paycheck? LOL! ; :D ;D ;)

    LOL, I was referring to the other full frame cameras that can take pictures at 10fps.

    Nikon D4: ; 16mp, $6k
    Canon EOS-1DX: 18mp, $6.8k

    So when you look at it in that way, $2800 is affordable. ; ;)

    The thing is a beast for sure. ; Most particular items of interest to me as the DUAL phase-detect AF sensors which can work in conjunction for tracking focus, including full awareness of subject distance and focus limit, the AF Range button which allows user-settable focus range front and back, infinitely, on any lens, with live preview of subjects within your selected distance, the electronic first curtain shutter, weather-sealed body, fully articulated LCD, 6 programmable buttons and two programmable dials plus 3 programmable memory banks, dual card slots with independent or linked function (other full framers have done this, but Sony has not in their past dual-slot cameras...finally they have full dual slot programmability for backup redundancy, seperating video and still, or seperating RAW & JPG)...and all the usual Sony perks like in-body stabilization and killer video spec with full phase-detect AF. ; Along with the new NEX6 body, the RX1 full frame fixed lens beast, and new NEX lenses, Sony is having a field day of releases!

    I was real excited reading about the RX-1, until I got to the price. It's definitely a glimpse into an exciting future.
