Sony A850, and a New Price Barrier Broken
Sony A850, and a New Price Barrier Broken (on full-frame cameras), tOP article.
Last year Sony shattered the price on full frame high-res cameras (down from Canon's $7,000 to Sony's $3,000), and now they do it again. Heck of a bargain. In the US at least. Why is everything so much cheaper in the US? It seems to have become worse recently, with prices on many products being about the same number in Pounds Sterling as in dollar, despite the 1 to 1.6 exchange relationship in the currencies. (And in many cases the dealers are even forbidden to ship across the Atlantic.)
