the "FLY" on the Ointment is that LAEA2 cost $300~400. Cheaper just to buy SLT DSLR

Those dog shots are stunning, I'm impressed with what you achieve with a LA-EA2 on Sony NEX.  But my euphoria was short lives, when I discover that:

  • LA-EA2 cost $399.99 retail (sony.com); cheapest is $279 by B&H
  • factor in the cost of buyin $XXX A-mount Telephoto lens
  • factor in the increase in SIZE, BULK, WEIGHT of the entire package.....

The Pink Elephant in the room is that is it simply CHEAPER, FASTER, and SMALLER just to buy a Separate Sony A33/A37/A55/SLT for sports action shoot.  This way you get the true 8 ~ 10fps without compromises while keeping a smaller "overall" package size.
