About me:

Fulltime Professional Photographer since 1987
Have used Minolta Equipment ( Now Sony ) from day one :-)
Started with an XG-1, progressed to 4X X-700's and my main Kit WAS 4x A700's, 1x A900, 1x A580, 4X A77's but all of those are currently on the shelf as using a completely new workflow with 3X new A99's

Just got my first 2X A77II's and the menu system is doing my head in :-(

Early indications of JPG quality and focussing speeds looking good though

Waiting for the next round of A mount body releases....

My lenses go from a Minolta 11-18mm 2.8 to a Minolta 300mm f2.8 and Minolta 600mm f4.0 - my favourite bit of kit :-)
Use both a Sigma APS 8-16mm and Sigma 14mm and 12-24 full frame zoom for interior factory shots

Have 3x Minolta Film 7's which are now there doing nothing..........
