Summary: I love my camera. This is a blast. So I was hoping that it would work well with my old Minolta Lenses and it does. I have a 35-80 mm lens and a 100-200 mm lens. I am thrilled. We spent and afternoon in the park and over to my daughters with my Grandchildren. I took a few shots, some very good.
Summary: I use this almost on a daily basis for in studio work and photo trips. With a good lens it is a sensational value. Sony cameras are the Photographers dream tool. I regularly use 3 of them almost daily. The SLT-A65 and SLT-A77 are the ultimate camera for any Photographer.
Summary: I bought the Sony A65 when first released. After 2 years and thousands of photos I continue to be impressed & delighted with the photos it produces. Previously I had four years of very positive experience with the 10 MP Sony A100, which was Sony's first DSLR.
Summary: This is my first foray into the DSLR realm. I have been using 35mm and my trusty Minolta Maxxum for years. Was glad to find this camera body as it lets me continue to use my Minolta AF lenses. The old lenses and new technology works flawlessly and seamlessly.
Summary: I loved my purchase of a Sony A-350 camera, however, my colleague, Roxanee Grunig of Gualala, CA wanted the same camera and was swayed by a New York City Amazon.com camera owner and was told it was dusty. He convinced her, for the same money to purchase a camera A-390 of lesser value .
Summary: A quick postscript to an older camera. Read this if you're debating a newer body or this older model. Vs. newer A330/380/390 models: 1. This body style is MUCH better. It fits your hand. They are impossible to hold. 2. The user interface on the newer models is dumbed down to P&S format.
