The fern shot is really beautiful, Clint. I miss your posts over in Panasonic-Land so I thought I would check out your posts here. I see you two are getting along real well!

Thanks Saly - I guess I could post a link there also but I might be breaching proper "photo-col" etiquette.

Clint-

You are getting very impressive results with the Sony A33. I also saw that you were posting some A55 photos as well. Which camera do you think will be your final decision.

The price of the A33 looks more appealing to me.

Sarah I finally decide on the A55, even though it was a bit more from what I have read the A55 seems to be a bit better in lower light than the A33. Plus it supposedly has better battery life, faster shots & GPS (which I have no interest in so I disabled it).
So far I think it's a great step up from the FZ35.

Next you'll be stepping into the world of lenses...zoom lenses, prime lenses, MF lenses, etc, etc, etc.

You're right Tullio!!

My Sigma 105 macro lens just arrived. I have the Sigma 18-250 and of course the 18-50 kit lens that came with the camera.

Now I just need to learn to use them.

Oh, it ain't going to end there...believe me! But, that's a good start. Looking forward to seeing some more pictures taken with the A55 and those lenses.

To the person on the previous page about light loss. And the one about the A55 being better.
First the A55 vs A33 I've looked a few sites who have direct picture comparisons. Like studio tests and compared them side by side by printing them out at 13x19 And you can not tell a difference at iso 800,1600 and 3200.. I've had a few people try to guess the better cam just because I didn't see anything myself. I still can't see any thing even in the resolution charts. So I'm assuming its a placebo effect amongst some testers. If the sensor is newer I didn't see anything about that when purchasing the camera because I spent a lot of time researching the cameras to find out about sensors. The only evidence I found of different sensors was on forums nothing from a legit reference like Sony itself. If anyone has info on that it for sure I'd like to know.

And for the amount of light lost. I know 30% is supposed to be lost. But, comparing the camera to any other camera the light lost shouldn't matter as much as how does the image quality look. I mean from my A200 it's night and day difference. Same lens same settings the image is still brighter on the A33

Can the A33/a35 cameras use of the shelf Sony lenses? David Kilpatrick's review seemed to indicate that the had to be SAM lenses and better?

My understanding is that the A33/A55 use the normal Sony and Minolta lenses.
