Editor's Review

The Sony Alpha A850 boasts some impressive technical specs at a relatively affordable price, though it's still clearly intended for professionals and super-serious amateurs. This is Sony's second full-frame DSLR, featuring a 24.6 megapixel CMOS sensor, in-camera image stabilization, continuous shooting at up to 3 frames per second, and a 3.0-inch LCD all in a magnesium-alloy shell (no movie mode, however). It doesn't have the 100% viewfinder, sealed body, or faster burst mode of the A900 but these are relatively small sacrifices. The camera is showing its age now in 2012 (when compared to the 5D Mark II) and we expect a full-frame SLT model is right around the corner.
