Please recommend older a-mount body for daughter
Apr 23, 2014

I have a A77, and would like my daughter to continue the photography she started at school but with compatibility with me gear. I think they used Nikon 3100. Because I have a-mount lenses I'd like to stick to the same system so she has lens choices. I was thinking perhaps an A-350 at around $200, but I really don't know much about the older Sonys or Minoltas. Would an A33 be better? BH have a couple of A700s around the $300 mark and wondering if that's a better option. Or is the A55 better again? I'm about to order from BH anyway so it would be a slight freight savings (I'm international).

I know I've asked how long is a piece of string, so how about;

if you had $200 to spend on an a-mount compatible camera body what would you buy, and would you rather pay $300 and get something clearly better?
