Hola!

Hi, just saying 'hello' to you all.

I have been making photos for some time, started with an old Chinon CE4 (anyone remember them!?) - moved on to Minoltas with various lenses and filters. 'Went digital' about two years ago. Currently use a Fuji Finepix S9600 and am considering moving up to a DSLR. Tempted to go with Sony; as I could then use my Minolta lenses - have been looking at both Canon and Nikon; but, as money is tight; I'll have to keep my ambitions in check - so it would be at the entry level - any suggestions?

I have joined Pixalo to learn...learn...learn. Hope to receive contructive criticism and tips.


John

Welcome to Pixalo fstopfotografy

Nothing wrong with the entry level Sony cameras especially if you have Minolta lenses that will fit. Sony has recently revised the line up so the older models might be found at a decent discount and you might be able to get a more advanced model if you would prefer one.

Re: Hola!

Small world - my mother was born in Dunstable - long, long time ago now - thanks for your heads up re possible discounted Sonys - I was reading AP today and Sony have just brought out a new Alpha 77 model 24mp+, with a price tag to match - ah well...one can dream! J.

Small world indeed. Rob Barron was also a Dunstable resident before he escaped!
