A poster just threw this onto another post as the 150th entry, so I figured I should share these pics. Look at the new lens

The original poster said it was shot at Brussels, Belgium, 08/2008. No other information about the pictures revealed.

That looks like an internal zoom.
Any ideas/guesses about max aperture?

On the display it says 3.5 around 24mm.

I'd bet the farm it's f2.8

EXIF says it was shot on August 14th.

Notice the tape over the logo on the prism.

A150: A200 w/ no mode dial, auto mode only. Has scene modes but the camera automatically selects them. Hurray for Sony making an uncomplicated DSLR for beginners.

A400: A350 w/ a circular eyecup! Getting into advanced amatuer terrotory here.

A450: A400 w/ extra range in the diopter adjustment. This may steal a700 sales though.
