My understanding is that Sony have( and probably still are) improved the pellicle mirror for use in the a700 replacement. I reckon this is one of the main reasons for the delay in releasing the new camera, and i would suggest to your pals that they wait to see reviews on the new camera, and then handle it before jumping ship.
I handled the a55 at Focus on Imaging, and was somewhat dubious, but I reckon that in due course, largely as a result of copyright restrictions, the other manufacturers will follow the pellicle route, and that we'll all have to accept that DSLR cameras will not be recognisable to what we have been used to.
