The New A10 leap! Is it really a cost worth debating?
The SONY A100 has been a good trial DSLR, but I'm ready to spring for the SONY A10 (if that really is its name).
I imagine there will be a bit of a cost involved, but I figure if (little "if" here) I spent the $$$ for what it would cost to have IS-capable lenses mount on my Canon ... it easily makes up the difference.
Let's do some math ...
SONY A10 = $1700 (MSRP) $1400 (street?)
SONY A100 = $899 (MSRP) $700 (street)
so that leaves $700 for IS-equipped lensing.
Let's do some common lens math, then ...
TAMRON SP AF17-50mm f/2.8 XR DiII LD Aspherical = $449 (MSRP) $429 (street)
Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM = $1149 (MSRP) $999 (Street)
difference for lens-based IS? = $570
Subtract that from your $700 difference in the camera body price = $130 left for IS. Hey, wait a minute. You can't get IS on any lens for a mere $130. Guess this comparison is over!
So, the camera appears to pay for itself in 1 1/2 IS-equipped lenses. Hmmm, isn't that something? :o Gosh, don't you just love word-problems?
Somebody stop me ... this is making way too much sense. :p
Make mine SONY ... because handheld, at 1/20th second ... no matter what lens you use ... the shake ... she is gone! Oui Oui!
