I am thinking about upgrading to a dslr camera.
I have been looking at a cannon, nikon and the sony.

I am leaning towards the sony dslr-a100
Does anyone have this camera and how do you like it?

I am leaning towards this one because of the price, the image stabilizer is built into the camera, not the lenses.
I also have lenses that are compatible with it.

I want an easy to use amateur dslr camera.
I have been reading review for weeks. :(

RE: Does anyone have a sony dslr

I would suggest the following for entry level:
Nikon D70 or D40
Canon XT or XTi
Olympus E500 ( best bang for the buck, 2 lenses and camera can be bought for $650)
- E410, Liveview and really small, if you have small hands

I own a Canon XT and Olympus E500, E1. Played with the Sony, and I did not like it, at all. If you are buying from a large electronic store, they don't know what they are talking about, well most don't, some do. They just need to sell stuff. Sony is large, well known name, that should not be selling point.

Sony bought the KM digital branch and they are taking an aggressive approach in the market. My in a year or so I might be interested in their camera but their first two attempts were great considering its their first two they have made, just not for me. They plan to be in the top three sellers so it should be interesting to see the improvements and prices they offer
