Default Some pics from Hong Kong

Just got my Sony Alpha 550 the other day and here are some pics that I have taken thus far. Pics were taken at the Fanling Golf Club.

They look good but severely resized. What if you resize to 800 x 600?

Glad the new camera is working out for you. What lenses did you end up going with?

I ended up just getting the kit lenses... 18-55 and 55-200
It was too much of a hassle going from store to store asking if they had the lenses for the alpha/minolta mount... I ended up saving quite a bit just getting the sony lenses. Im gonna try to learn the camera with these two lenses and take it from there. I will definitely upgrade once I know first hand what I need.

I see some lack of sharpness in your picks.

That is a wise decision. I think you will want to invest in a macro lens, the kit lens seems a bit soft and not very sharp for the task of macro.
