Re: Is sony Alpha DSLT/DSLR the right platform for learning photography and growth?

Is it a coincidence that nearly all the replies here are FOR sony? Take it for what its worth Mr Cool, check other forums and do web searches. I have a long history with this forum and if you disagree with them, all you get is insults. I agree with one of the guys here, you may do better with a common brand as other people can help you more.The reason I swapped sony for pentax was weather sealing on ALL their current cameras. I've watched a man burry his K5 in sand, wash it off under a shower, then shoot with it.

Just today I read Nord say he lost a $1300 a77 due to shooting too long in the rain. If you want the best per dollar photo quality, go pentax or nikon. Which you choose is up to you, check everything you can find from as many sources as you can find. Anybody who tells you to trust them and ignore others is a fanboy with an agenda.

My only personal advice is, if you do choose the a57 as you seem to be leaning towards, hold off on buying a slew of lenses until you know this is the system you want to stay with. I got lucky and only had 4 lenses when I decided to move. If I had spent thousand$ more I would have been in more of a pickle.
