'Upgrading' and outgrowing the a230 - Recommendations please!
You may have seen me around the forum mentioning (moaning) that I'm outgrowing the a230. I've been looking at the a65 which looks stunning but I'm sure there are other (maybe even cheaper?) alternatives!
I've attached some images to show what I've been shooting with the a230. I'm looking to keep all of my current lenses as well so the camera would need to be compatible with the lenses used for the a230.
Thanks for the eventual advice guys.
You have to bear in mind...
These are SONY trade-ins... and they are not going to give you FMV (fair market value) for their own product. I suspect that they would rather you bought a new one and threw the other one away, so they could sell a "new" camera to the next guy, too, instead of you. It's all about the buck, with them. Cynically speaking, they are just continually developing ways to reach into your pocket and pull it out.
Of course, on this side, we are more concerned with making the product work better and producing a decent result.. and try to not go extinct by doing it.
I do not think you will go wrong with an a65. It is clearly the newest kid on the block and that's the way it is. Once you buy it, the trade-in value slips to about half, even though you have not opened the box, yet. That's sad, but that's how it works.
What's the value of an item you are selling?
