Welcome, as long as you understand the limitations of this camera, (no hotshoe flash and limited autofocus lenses), you will love this camera.

I agree and disagree, the alpha lenses with the la-ea1 will AF, and I think most claims are what we used to call with cars "using the butt-dyno" or in other words not actually counted in seconds.

The la-ea1 on my alpha 35/f1.8 is around 3 seconds to AF in normal lighting which isn't excellent but it's not "lets go make tea" time either, as others have implied.

that said, definitely should be aware of what you're getting into with it, but it's an excellent system! welcome aboard!
