It finally stopped raining here in Missouri. Two quick pictures from my A200.

Flower, good color range.

Sky, good smooth blues, low noise.

So far I really like this camera, just wishing for liveview for the macro shots.

The way Sony implemented live view in the new A300 and A350 models is pretty cool. You don't have the drawbacks that you do with other current live view systems (needing to use slower contrast autofocus from the main sensor, or needing to switch in and out of live view to use the camera's main autofocus sensor.

The Sony uses a separate sensor for the live view, with a design that lets the camera's main AF sensor work at the same time (and it even shows you the active autofocus points on the LCD while you're using live view).

Your shot of a yellow flower reminded me of a Sony Flash presentation for the A700 on a Sony UK web site (and Sony has posted slightly different versions for different regions). :-) The presentation is showing a shot of a yellow sunflower, though.

See it here:
