The year was 2008 and I was looking for my first DSLR. A friend, a professional Minolta shooter, recommended Sony entry level cameras, and A200 seemed to offer the best value for my very limited funds, so I got it with the 18-70 kit lens. Later I added a Sigma 70-300 and then some primes (Minolta 1.4/50, Sony 1.8/35 & 2.8/85) with a Sony flash.

I was very happy with that until last year when I started wanting something a bit more advanced and when the A77 came along, and after toying with the idea of switching systems to Nikon, I ended up selling all my lenses and the A200, and got the A77, 2.8/16-50, 1.4/85 ZA and the 70-300 G.
