Pros: The camera is a GREAT one for taking pictures...I have a lemon and they won't stand behind it.
Cons: My camera tells me that the lens is not attached about every 3 or 4 pictures...it has a problem and the company will not stand behind it!! Stay away from Sony....they avoid problems with products like the plague!!
A100 died after only 5 weeks - customer service is Rude!

Summary: I pre-ordered this camera from Sony because it uses the Minolta lens mount. I was so excited to be able to jump into digital and still be able to keep my lenses. I received the A100 on August 17, 2006 and the power went off and stayed off on September 24, 2006. I called their Tech support who did not recognize the name of the camera (their website doesn't recognize it either). The first question they asked was if I had turned it on!
Summary: I am an ex owner of this camera. Deciding not to upgrade my SLR lens collection for a camera that I failed to get on with. I am not saying this is a bad camera just that I did not get on with it and I will tell you why. Firstly the controls are not very well set out.It is still trying to cater to the creative compact market and has lots os settings for various scenes etc...this si either a serious camera or not it can't be both.
