"Great Camera"4.5 starson by bayguy13
Pros: Great camera. Fantastic for Minolta Maxxum users. Small learning curve if you've owned a Maxxum.
Cons: The kit lense can't match the quality of the Minolta lenses.
Summary: As a long time Minolta Maxxum owner, I was excited to find that all my Minolta lenses and virtually all the Maxxum accessories that I owned would work with the Sony Alpha series. I got the A300 and was very surprised to find that even some of the more esoteric Maxxum accessories actually worked with it. I still have the Maxxum 8000i body and I'm getting the same quality pictures with the A300.
