if you can find an adapter you can mount a om lens on a dslr. But it does not work that well, no spilt prism no a dslr to aid in focus.

I doubt it will come to north america. They are most likely replacing it with more new sony entry level dslr coming.

AFAIK, it's not going to be released here. Sony decided to make the A450 a Europe only camera.

Now, you probably will see more new dSLR models released this year from Sony, and chances are, they'll be released in more than one market. But, I would not expect to see the A450 available in North America.

Ah ok. Not too disappointing for me - I've never been a Sony fan anyway. (I'm currently saving up for a Canon Rebel XS.)

I have managed to find a comparison website that seems useful
http://snapsort.com/compare/Canon_EO...lpha_DSLR-A450

I have been looking for something that give sensor size.

The Pentax K-x also looks good any comments or would you still go for the A450.

If you still think I should I will get it tomorrow. I am so glad I found this sites forum.

Regards

Will

The k-x is a excellent camera, good at action. You get liveview and hd video. The best entry camera this year. i shoot it along side my t1i, and I am very please by it.

After shooting the pentax, I would go with the pentax over the sony personally.

With the added advantage of HD 720 video on top. I think I have just upped the price range. (but with video included it should last me many years and have the convenience of only carrying one camera and 2 lenses for all my needs for the next few years. Memories of the kids are worth the price and to enjoy the pleasures of photography again makes it well worth it. I just need to find a way to develop the pictures again. Photoshop is not the same as a darkroom.

Thanks for your help and advice. The fact you have used the camera reassures me that it is the correct decision.

Thanks again.

if you go with the 2 lens kit, go with the one with the 55-300mm over the 50-200mm. It is a much better lens, very sharp at 300mm.
