"Astonishing photo quality. I couldn't be happier!"5.0 starson by gregsoc
Pros: I've taken a little over a thousand photos with the A900 to date and I couldn't be happier with this camera. Whether shooting at night, low- light, or bright lighted conditions, the A900 has performed admirably. Works perfectly with Minolta G lenses.
Cons: None to date. Autofocusing is good with my Minolta G series lenses. I've had no issues with the image processing speed (and I shoot almost exclusively in RAW). Image color reproduction is excellent. Detail is sharp at the highest ISO I use (800).
Summary: I don't see how you can go wrong with this purchase - whether you're a semi-pro like me or a full fledged professional. I haven't had any of the issues mentioned in the CNET review. The steadyshot inside works very well, making all of my Minolta G Series lenses image stabilized - a huge advantage. If you want the same magificent image reproduction that this sensor provides, but don't like the SONY logo on your camera, I'd recommend the NIKON D3X. It uses the same high megapixel SONY manufactured sensor as the A900 in a package that retails for $8,000. I think that alone illustrates the value this camera provides.
