    If you don't already have the SD15, I would MUCH rather Leitax my lenses and put them on an A900. The mount conversion on the lenses is reversible.

    Unless of course, you're planning to shoot an R8 in tandem.

    Thanks thrice ^_^
    I haven't got SD15 yet.
    Leica R wide, 50mm, or 180 may be brought, so
    sigmacumlaude is more suitable than Leitax in this condition.
    And I have a R8 from my friend and seen that R8 mount
    is similar to Sigma. It's nice if they could be exchanged.
    I prefer the film like from X3 sensor, but A900 is of full frame..oh...
    Heard that A99 or A950 is very good and coming soon.

    When ugrading from SD15 to SD1(years later price drop),
    I don't know if I have to buy a SD1 mount for Leica R.

    No one knows anything about the A99 yet, anyone who says they do... well they're lying. Unless they work for Sony R&D.

    Hi thrice,
    You said right!
    Canon announced that 1DX will be available in March 2012.
    It's believed Sony's new camera shouldn't be late, just guess ^_^
