Sony Alpha DSLR-A100 reviews and opinions

Does anyone have the Sony Alpha DSLR-A100? What are the pros and cons? How are the camera controls, LCD display etc Im looking for a DSLR to replace my Maxxum 7000 and 8000i bodies that will allow me to continue to use the multitude of AF lenses that Ive acquired over the years. I was waiting for a price drop in the Maxxum 7D and I waited to long as Minolta got out of the camera business. Its not like I really have a choice in camera bodies because I have too much money invested in the lenses.

I own a Minolta 5D and am very happy with it. The Sony has adopted the ergonomics, the lens mount, and the anti-shake feature of the 5D/7D series. If you search the net, there may still be some new-in-box 7D or 5D Minoltas available.

Your Minolta autofocus lenses will work with either the Minoltas or the Sony. My 28-75 mm Minolta D series AF zoom lens has very solid resolution and color.

Go to Dyxum.com, a forum for Minolta and Sony DSLR users, to get first hand information about the Sony from serious amateur photographers.

I use a KM 7D, but have no experience with the Sony. You might want to go back to DPReview and check out their Sony Alpha forum where a lot of users post. Also, you can go to www.dyxum.com (dedicated to Minolta and Sony DSLR's) or www.dcresource.com, which also has a Sony Alpha forum.
