Well I made the leap from Minolta Dynax 7 to the new Sony A100 to breath life once again into my Minolta lenses, which have been lying dormant after dabling with digital using a Fuji S7000. I think Ill give the Fuji to the kids, which is a good excuse for keeping it and justifying forking out £599 at Jessops for the new A100 with 18-70mm lens, not to forget more expense for the 1Gb CF II card. First impressions - Impressed. I read stacks of reviews pre-launch and decided to take the plunge on Friday (1 day prior to official UK launch). The Sunderland Airshow was looming and I had to be quick as my local Jessops store only had 1 black and 2 silver (exclusive to Jessops) bodies in stock. I opted for the black of course. I spent Saturday reading the manual and cleaning up my old minolta lenses ready for action. Sunday was perfect airshow weather so of I went armed with the A100 and my Minolta 100-300 mm lens attached. This was the only lens I used to catch all the action, this would also test out the anti-shake system. I rattled off some 400 pics that afternoon and was extremely impressed once back home and downloaded to my laptop. The anti-shake works extremely well with hardly any picture showing signs of blur. I used the lens at the 300 mm focal length throughout the afternoon. I was going to try another couple of lenses that afternoon but was that excited I plain forgot. I shot all images in jpeg, just to cram as many images in as possible. Ill give the RAW side of things a go next time. I tried loads of different settings on the day with some fantastic results. Last time I was at the Airshow I used 35mm film and got a handful of half decent photographs, this time I got about 300 decent photographs. I dont think there will be any going back to film after this. So all in all Im extremely impressed, especially as all my Minolta lenes, flash, filters and remote work on the new camera. Anyone else took the leap ???
