I have the a700 - upgraded from the a100, and it's an absolutely wonderful camera. Favorably compared to the Nikon D300 (not trying to start an argument, just saying . . .).
I don't think you'll be disappointed if you upgrade.

I have a Sony A700. I love it, the images are wonderful. The processor is outstanding and I think you get more bang for your buck right now as Sony is very serious about getting into the DSLR market. Please note if you buy the kit get the 16 to 105 lens as it is much better then the other kit lenses. The ends of the range are like the other lenses but from about 18 to 95 the lens is tack sharp and has great contrast. I just ordered a new A700 as my current one suffered a injury. The camera and tripod blew off a rock in the Alabama Hills and dropped about 40 Feet only to meet another rock. The case is broken and is to costly to repair. The camera works and is still in use but is real ugly. I have also ordered a Carl Zeiss lens. I have made my living with photography for the last 27 years and I will tell you that the A700 is a very good camera. You can find better but at a much higher price and it looks like that Sony is coming up with new lenses. If you are planing to be a pro you may want to look at cannon as you can rent lenses and the system is much larger having shift tilt lenses etc. For every day shooting and my fine art work I like the Sony A700.
