thanks DWEverett sounds good then. and what about the lens? chould i go witht the 16-50 mm F2.8 that came with it or should i just get in just body then buy a lens?


I don't know much about it as I already had a Sigma 17-50 f2.8 when it was introduced.  My suggestion is to post the question in the Sony forum and/or go out to dyxum.com and look at the reviews of the various lens options there.  I've always heard/read comments that it's "very good".  For the class of lens and price that's probably the right level of praise.  I don't hear the kind of rave reviews that something like the Zeiss 135 or 135 STF get (both of which are signficantly more money)
