Sony Alpha DSLR-A100 Review
Lenses / Accessories (the 'Alpha System')
Sony want to be clear that the introduction of the A100 isn't just another new digital SLR with a kit lens. They're ensuring that this introduction marks the beginning of the 'Alpha System' which is at the time the camera hits the shelves will mean at least a dozen Alpha branded lenses (with more to follow) and numerous accessories. Obviously quite a lot of this was inherited from Konica Minolta but it's at least slightly satisfying to see Sony approaching the digital SLR business h in such a serious nature.
Over Twenty Alpha lenses
Sony have announced nineteen lenses which will carry the Sony Alpha branding. Several of these lenses are simply cosmetically altered Minolta lenses (and there's little wrong with that) in addition however there are three (very nice looking) new Carl Zeiss lenses and a couple of white bodied super zooms. Note that not all lenses will be available immediately, we have indicated the estimated time of availability as well as list price in the table below.
Alpha System Accessories
Accessories which will make up the intial Alpha System include batteries, flash, remotes, eyepieces and even bags and straps. Obviously quite a few of these are re-badged products but it's good to see a relatively complete system rather than just a camera and a couple of lenses.
