Recommend Sony to new DSLR users?
Apr 5, 2010

I really enjoy my A700, and I have a friend who is going to be buying his first DSLR. I want to recommend Sony to him but I have some reservations. First off I don't know that much about the entry level Alphas except that there are quite a few models. My impression seems that Canon & Nikon seem to offer a lot more features for the same money. Is this true?

I know a lot of enthusiasts decry the entry level Alpha models as too dumbed down, but my buddy has never shot a DSLR before so that might be a good thing.

Thoughts? Would you recommend a Sony entry level Alpha? Which one? Why? If not, what would you recommend and why?

Thanks
