    Question Where is that tide of new a33/a55 users?

    I was just thinking we would have heard from some of the horde of new Translucent Mirror Technology technophiles by now. Did someone lock the door?

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    Lightbulb The more you look ...

    I have been reviewing some of the drawbacks that still exist using the video portion of the α33/α55 ... and they sure do not advertise those in the promo material.

    Despite all the hoop-lah ... it's still not quite ready for prime time, because in auto ... it determines your aperture if you desire it to autofocus. Uh, come on.

    I know, there are the "to the death" defenders out there, ready to explain the inner workings of the SLT ... but I contest, you should not have to explain ANYTHING, if it really "does it all." You should be able to pick your aperture at anytime and fire away! It has to be that stupidly simple or why bother?

    Oh sure, you can struggle with whatever the camera GIVES you ... but it sure is a reason to forget autofocusing with expensive PRIME and low-light lenses. It literally "discounts" the whole idea of ... let's all say it together, eh?

    interchangeability


    I mean, if I have a 70-200mm f/2.8 .. and I cannot shoot any wider than a 70-300mm f/4-5.6? Yikes! Someone is wasting money.

    hmm turns out the Sony A55 and A33 just can't physically handle the stress (heat) of recording for so long. Forget any restrictions Sony has placed on the camera....

    Isn't this true of any DSLR?
    If you need longer, the VG-10 does it, I think.
