Re: Sony, value A-mount photographers!

Misread the thread title as Sony A-mount, for value photographers.

Yes it is now a neglected camera system, but the present cameras A77ii-A68-A99ii are still fairly good compared to state of art and so it is indeed still a great system for photographers looking for bang-for-buck as it was several years ago (Minolta lenses!).

2 years ago a friend wanted to get into ILC photography (after I lent her A55+ Beercan + Min 28-105 for a month) and she had some specific interests but opposite of a gear head and wanted to buy a set once and keep it for a long time. Walked her through various systems including mirrorless, but suggested A68 + Sigma 17-70 + Tamron 70-300 (those lenses covered the 2 things she wanted to do). Camera was new, lenses we got used. Just around $1100 and this is a really good set up even today for that price.
