Bill, thanks for the reply. I guess so, but this is around the level of the NEX isn't it? What I'm really after is a successor to the AX 2000. My problem is that I'm not keen to spend that much on a 2 year old camera, and Sony's latest prosumer models seem to be more distant from pro level than the AX 2000. I just wondered if anyone had heard of something else on the horizon. I didn't notice anything in CES reports.
