Summary: I bought this camera because I already had great lenses from an older broken camera body that I just couldn't throw away. I like the camera because it's easy to use with the auto focus, but I am looking forward to learning about and using all of this camera's features.
Pros: Auto focus is a bonus, Bright LCD, Comfortable Controls, Strong Construction
Summary: Great Camera. Only fault is it takes to many steps to access some controls to adjust camera. This takes too much time. The covered LCD screen is nice as you use it when you want but it is not exposed nor does it take up room.
Summary: Excellent camera for any level of use in a budget. There are always "better" cameras but for under 1000, this is a great deal compared to others! Features are what you get for the money, although they aren't bad, and better than most.
Summary: Well!, i have just purchased this Sony A100 body only for $[...] no kit lens for me. I bought the Sigma 28-105mm f2.8 AF for it. Reason i bought this A100 is because i got the Sony R1 a few months back, R1 really impressed me with its results images with Zeiss lens, thats motivated me to buy Sony...
Summary: I haved loved this camera since I received it in Dec. The only issue i am having is getting a good stop action picture in average lighting conditions for a gym. This is a problem with lots of cameras though. I would buy this camera again even with the price tag! It makes taking pictures FUN!
Summary: This is a great camera for a person like me who is just starting to use an SLR- It is so user friendly and really easy to figure out. I love that it has the shake stabalizer. It takes great pictures of my kids even when they are running.
Pros: Bright LCD, Comfortable Controls, Strong Construction
Summary: I bought the camera with the basic lens and a 75-300 mm lens. It covers most of what I do. However, if you plan on a lot of inside activity photos, definately get the external flash and a more appropriate lens.
Pros: Bright LCD, Comfortable Controls, Quiet, Small Lag Time, Strong Construction
