Just moved up from a H2 to the A100. Got it for a great price, but am totally new to this world. I have the Gary Friedman book and I am doing some reading. But when it comes to lenses it will def get some getting used to. While looking at all the different lens on eBay I noticed that some make it appear it to be model specific. Like it will say A350 or a900. Is this the case? I have more questions, but I'm still searching using the search button. Thanks for any help.

Welcome to Steve's!

All Sony, Minolta, Tamron and Tokina lenses with an Alpha Mount will work fine on your A100. Most Sigma lenses with an Alpha Mount will work fine, but some early Sigma lenses won't. The only reason to make a distinction is that the Sigma "DC" and Tamron "Di II" lenses will only work with Sony dSLRs that have the smaller APS-C size image sensors. Currently, that's all except the A900.

I neglected to mention that Sony and Minolta "DT" lenses will also only work with APS-C dSLRs.
