Although slightly less capable than its older sibling, the A850 offers just about everything I liked about the A900 including a slew of sophisticated features that make it easy to capture great images. Its 24 megapixel sensor provides plenty of resolution, but be prepared to push all those pixels through your software in post-processing, especially if you're shooting at high ISOs.
It's also not as fast as the A900, but unless you're shooting really fast-action sports, its 3 fps continuous shooting speed should be fine. There are plenty of other options out there if you have a need for speed. While the A850 may not be perfect, it is currently the most affordable option for photographers who want a high resolution, full-frame camera.
