Found out that the A100 would work with all of my Minolta 7000's current equipment except the flash. So I put one in layaway untill after Christmas.

After looking at all the stuff I could find on this camera and the many photos, I'm glad I did.

This is the first time I have bought a camera without doing research on it first. Weird.

Somebody needs to shout out that Minolta autofocus lenses work with Sony dSLRs. It seems there are lots of people out there that have Maxxums and don't know that they can still use their lenses on new cameras.

Good luck with the A100! Come back an dpost something when you can.

And welcome back to the forums! I noticed that your previous post was in March of 2005!

Picked it yesterday:-)

Went to the US Air Force Museum today and took some pic's.

All shots were handheld without flash and with auto ISO.

I resized them to fit here. Also the EXIF info is still there.

Congratulations! It looks like you used a 50/1.7 for the first two, while the next two, and possibly the last, were shot using the kit lens. No noticeable motion blur from camera shake at shutter speeds of 1/6", 1/10" and 1/3"! Well done.

You are correct on the lenses. The 50/1.7 gave me the best shots there. Using the kit lens I had to be really still as the shutter was longer.

Now all I need is a really fast wide angle zoom lens. Like the Tamron 17-50 f2.8.

Can't wait untill spring time. :-)

I have one and am very pleased with it.

Been doing alot of research on this lens. Ordered me one from my local camera shop last Friday.

Good luck with it. Remember that it's not as fast as the 50/1.7, but it's a lot faster than the kit lens especially at the long end.
