Ick....I would NEVER buy a sony DSLR, their Quality control is abysmal, not to mention they seem to have catastrophic design flaws with half of the stuff they sell (especially consoles, but their PC's and even walkmans suffer from problems too)
EDIT: Not to mention that they would most likely incorporate all sorts of proprietary crap that only their cameras would use. (Memory stick Pro Duo)
"The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age."
