Sarah, lol.....the Nikon does feel better, but I'm also throwing in the equation that the A230 has the built-in IS....Looking ahead for future lense purchases, plus the fact the I can get the a230 for $100 cheaper then the Nikon....so maybe I can live with the Sony grip.

Here is an idea, anthony_b-

Why not be on the lookout for a Sony A-200. It is essentially the same camera and I actually like the grip on the A-200 better than on the A-230. It is a bit larger in size with a better curve to it.

I found a brand new in the box A-200 for $350.00 delivered and it included the Sony 18-70mm kit lens. The A-200 does use the larger battery that is found on the A-700 and CF rather that dual SD and ProDuo slots.

Have a great weekend.

Because the Nikon D-3000 is just being introduced here in the USA, there will probably be no discount from the list price for a month or so.
