    Well it's also the fact that the Sony shutters (mirror flaps) are noisy and yes, I know greener on the other side, lol. I was just dreaming and optical VR is better for the longer lengths. A new system also gives more things to buy (with money I don't have) and mess with (flashes, a select few lenses on the tele end that Sony lacks, etc...) Rooz, what's missing? That said, an a700 is next to buy.

    For Sony, I really like the 16-35mm CZ and 24-70mm CZ. I think those two are an absolute winner. For the 24-70mm class, I think it's the best lens out of the bunch.

    Speaking of the Tamron and guitar concerts. From tonight.


    Taken with a Sony DSLR-A300 handheld, props to SSS, was off, and realized so I turned it on and bam!

    Thanks, so what was it you were interested in Canon's lineup? Seems like you have everything you would need. I would love to have your setup!

    Nice one, dr4gon, and he's wearing black today.
    1/15 at 200mm, that's pretty impressive as well!

    That f/4 L glass was a big deal for me. I think Nikon has the best bodies, but Sony offers IS on the 16-35 and 24-70, and Canon offers the best selection of glass, in particular the f/4 L zooms and some of the L primes.

    Kinda amplifies the grass is greener effect.

    Ah I see, something lighter (and cheaper).

    Jason there may be new body for Sony around the corner so to speak? Is there anyplace or anyone you can try out and get a feel for the A700? If you do a platform change over I do hope you continue to post and visit here as well as on flickr. I myself am still pretty new to Sony, I keep hoping that they will get some of these system bugs worked out or at least smoothed out, You already have a investment here, and plenty of Minolta glass around if you want to go old school. What ever path you choose you will always be welcome here.

    Thanks for the "reinvitation." I really enjoy chatting with the group here. So much of what we discuss isn't really platform specific anyway.

    I hate to say it, but it was the A700 that did it for me. I went into a Wolf (the day they announced bankrupcy infact) and held a 50D and an A700 back to back. I shot with each of them, played with settings, etc. And I just REALLY liked the feel of the 50D more than the A700, or the D90/D80 for that matter. The A700 is awesome, but it was one of those gut feeling type of things. I posted about it a little, but that was really when I made up my mind. Of course I ended up not getting a 50D/40D, which makes it seem kinda stupid, but I expect to get one soon.
