The Sony Alpha A900 DSLR, which some people might feel like they’ve been waiting for forever, has finally been officially unveiled by Sony. Pre-orders for the $3,000 24.6-megapixel camera begin tomorrow, September 10th, but it won’t be shipping until sometime in November.
The A900, according to Sony, “is designed to deliver ultra-fine picture quality with the world’s highest resolution, 24.6-megapixel, 35 mm full-frame CMOS sensor and fast image processing with a new dual BIONZ® processing engines. The camera is also the first to have a body-integrated image stabilization system for a full-frame sensor with Sony’s SteadyShot® Inside anti-shake system.” Those of you who need such accoutrements know who you are and hopefully have at least $3,000 around.
Be sure to set aside some more coin for the premium lenses that Sony announced today as well.
The SAL1635ZA (above, top) is a super wide angle lens suited for landscape, snapshot, and indoor photography and will cost a knee-buckling $1,800. The SAL70400G lens (above, bottom) is a 5.7x super telephoto zoom lens is best-suited for sports, action, and wildlife photography. It’ll cost slightly less at $1,500.
Both lenses won’t be available until January of next year, so you’ll have to patiently bide your time until then.
