Dang, Sony is always coming up with some of the most cleanest and minimalist looking designs which I like. However the A700 successor is going to be their biggest announcement, if this is a picture of it then it looks hot enough already without even knowing the specs yet.

That new 700 looks like a canon with SONY logo. At least the old 700 looked rugged and special.
Funny that the small dslr has space for a top lcd but the space is used to inform the user that it's capable of HD video.

Evils look nice as a natural link between compacts and dslr. But it lacks hot shoe.

It doesn't look like a Canon to me, however if you look at the back from reflection, it does look like a typical Sony. But despite the Evils lacking a hot shoe, it may be a unfinished prototype or it could be a pop-up flash or viewfinder, who knows. However I'm sure nobody is going to attach a giant flash to a EVIL for fashion shots here.

I also think Samsung has nothing against Sony, Sony is just much better overall and has a lot more experience in the camera world. Busting out FF, APS-C, and now Evils, with new lenses after new lenses, Carl Zeiss and G series. If anything at all I would consider switching to Sony in the future, not now but in a couple years if Pentax doesn't go so well.

That A700 is going to be a beast.

So you're saying you'd choose the lesser of two EVILs?

Sony seems to be really aggressively getting into the DSLR game. But the pricing and ergonomics still make it an expensive option where I'd rather go and invest in something like Canon/Nikon... or even better, my existing Pentax system.
