Thank you, Nemist

You saved me a lot of typing.

I shopped the A-mount system extensively last year and came to very much the same conclusion. Too many lenses are available only in used Minolta, while too many of the Sony lenses are rebadged older designs -- aside from the outright holes in the system.

I've tried a number of Sony cameras and lenses over the past year (and quite a few Minolta lenses as well), and while there is a lot I like about Sony I just cannot seem to find a way to build a complete system within the brand.

Perhaps worse, I don't know what Sony will do next. I no longer consider a camera system a long-term investment -- I think 3 years or at most 5 is as far out as we can plan in digital -- but I don't even have a feel for where Sony is going in the next 6 months, much less 3 years.
