One month ago in many forums people started to say that Sony could release the long expected firmware for the A850 and the A900. We didn’t hear anything form our sources so we posted the “rumor” with a low value “SR2=from unkown sources”.
I really hope Sony has been able to address all the critics we read in the forums during the last months!
UPDATE: I have no details about the new firmware. I was only told that it will be a “major update”.
Digitalcamerarview just posted their latest Sony A850 test. If you read the pro and the cons list you will not find any surpise. The Sony A850 has an excellent resolution and dynamic range and has a not so exciting High-ISO performance.
