    This weeks AP magazine in the uk has some news on the above ahead of the cameras official unveiling on 1st May (lol)

    Article mentions that Sony engineers tested it at horse racing, canoeing and baseball events, before showing it to AP.

    First impressions suggest the cameras 79 point AF system is very fast and the burst rate is impressive. Quote - this could be a fantastic camera for amateur wildlife and sports photographers
    The duration of subject tracking can be controlled using five steps, including one designed to allow more responsive focusing when rapidly shooting different subjects at various distances.. £1,000 body only uk price on launch.
    I believe the sensor is the same as the Alpha 6000 which produced some impressive results recently, at least according to AP.
    Wonder if this is the new enthusiast DSLR to own for sports and wildlife. Is this Sony on a charge or typical AP excitable editorial...:biggrin:
