    One issue with A350 review...

    "The A350 definitely lags behind other high resolution D-SLRs (namely the Canon 40D and Nikon D300) in terms of high ISO photo quality, in my opinion."

    Is this really a fair statement? The 40D and...

    One can hope that the Sony version would cost less without the VC technology, but I doubt it.

    I agree that the 18-250 is a way better lens than the 18-70, but it's also like $400 more. For a first lens for a first time dSLR user, the 18-70 is a fine lens to get started on. I now always...

    price matters...

    Ummmm. the a-700 is sweet, but it's $1400 and the a-100 is $600. The a-100 is a still a fantastic camera and can be used for just about any dSLR needs. The a-700 is icing on the cake for the 'serious...

    disagree

    I totally disagree. The kit lens from KM or Sony are a very good value. They are light and very sharp. They just are that well built. They make for a great walk around lens when weight matters.

    no problem...

    I have a Sigma 70-200 f2.8 monster, and an equally sized 135-400. In both cases the lens comes with a mount bracket to mount on a tripod. I use a bogen quick release and a bogen ball head and I have...

    kit lens is pretty good...

    The 18-70 kit lens is actually a pretty darned good lens. Light and sharp.

    If you want more range and are willing to change lens, get a used 70-200 f4 (bearcan) lens. You should be able to get one...

    Look at the Tamron 18-250

    I will be brief...

    Take a look at the Tamron 18-250. I think it's the best general all around lens on the market today.

    With my A-100, I have a SanDisk III and a basic 1x Lexar I have found that even using RAW, they both record as fast as I can take pictures. I suppose there is a read difference, but that isn't too...

    I think you are under a bit of a misconception. Just because the DSC-H5 looks like a dSLR doesn't mean it is one. The DSC-H5 is a digicam with the smaller digicam sensor. It's still a great camera,...

    Sony DSLR-A100 and flashes

    Hi,

    Maybe this has been brought up before, but in the review here for the DSLR-A100 is says:

    "As far as I can tell there is no way to use third party flashes with this camera."

    either one

    Either one is a decent cheapo lens. Some will say one is better, and other will defend the other one. I've read where the Sigma 18-125 is a fairly good lens, and that's the one I would get for a walk...

    Same as KMs

    KM invented wireless flash (I think). It's built into my 5D and the 7D. I just set up a KM flash or two, pop up my built in, change the mode of the built in to master, attach each slave to sync them...

    Give it time

    Sheesh, we all know Sony is just getting started in the dSLR business. Yes, the A100 is logical evolution of the 5D. This is not unlike the Rebel 350xt replaced the 300. Nikon is still on first gen...

    convert all to DNG?

    Hello,

    I'm new to the dSLR scene and I have a question. Is it worth keeping raw files in native format, or is it worth converting them all to DNG? Will DNG be the next PDF format?

    Are there any...

    The Maxxum 5D has mirror lock up when the 2 second self timer is used.
    I think the rebel has it with the russian hack.
    I think the rebel XT has it.
    E-300 has it (with 1.2 firmware)

    While KM doesn't get a lot of air time here, the Maxxum 5D and 7D are also great cameras to consider. The main con with the 7d in the review here is that is is expensive. Well, that just ain't true...

    The KM forum at dpreview.com is much more active than here. As expected, they are pretty happy with the 7D and looking forward to the 5D. They are also jealous of the new line of Canon cameras :-)...

    If the IS fails, just turn it off and keep shooting!

    Your basic argument holds true for any camera; if the mechanics or electronics fail, then you have to get it repaired. I don't see how it's...
