    AF - autofocus? Have only done my research into cameras so far - not the lenses!

    The AF in the lens refers to the ability of the camera's autofocus ability to be transmitted to the lens to focus it. The older film era lenses pre-dated this technology. The later Minolta lenses, which will look like one Don showed the picture of, will have the AF on them.

    These later Minolta lenses as a group are very good lenses, relative to similar grade and size lenses. The Minolta compatability was a big reason why I went with Sony over the competition.

    Well I'm finally the proud owner of a brand new A390. Managed to pick it up for 299.99 (cheaper than the A290 in most shops!). Just a lot of work now to get used to the camera and look into lenses etc.

    A big thanks to everyone for the advice.
