Hi all,

I am currently shooting with an a700. Love the camera. Actually have 2 of them. I own many Minolta Legacy lenses from 24mm to 200mm. I have an oppurtunity to buy a hardly used a900 for $900.00. Can anyone share their thoughts from moving from a700 to a900? Would you make this move for 900- and sell off the a700? I did not like the new viewfinders on Sony's SLTs


Many legacy lenses?

I have one MF lens the STF and find the A99 focus peaking VERY helpful. I had to use the viewfinder magnifier to use it on the A900.

On the other hand, $900 for the last of the great OVF Sony is no brainer. Your 24mm will be 24mm not 36mm on A700.
