If you have been craving the full-frame sweetness of Sony’s flagship DSLR-A900, but don’t quite have the savings for it, The A850 may be just what your accountant ordered. It checks in at $2,000, which is a decent price drop from the A900, but, you get the same 24.6-megapixel (effective) CMOS sensor that we liked so much, and most of the other features as well. It will be available in September, which gives you a little time to dissect and compare the spec sheets. More specs and images below.
