Sony a57... should I pull the trigger
Apr 16, 2013

My heart was set on a compact system but I can't find one with good reviews on sports photography.  I am bleacher mom with 3 teenage boys and I want to photograph in baseball, football, basketball, and track.  I also want to take senior pictures for the boys and save $... justifying the camera purchase.

Plan is to get the a57 and pick up some minolta lenses on ebay... what do you all think?  The lighter weight convenient option I looked at was the Nikon P7700 with the 7.1 zoom.

I am not a technical gadget gal, more hands on... this said, I am highly motivated to learn more about photography as I am an artist by trade.

P.S.  This forum has been my Bible for research this past week researching cameras.  Thank you to all the experts who post and share their knowledge.
