Cameras seldom suck, photographers mostly do.

Nobody said they suck, they just said other brands have a stronger lens line-up and better high iso noise performance and perhaps better ergonomics. Nice shots :wink:

Hi, yes Sony is great! hehehe

about your photos, I am pretty confused on what you try to capture.

For the chandeliers, I don't know where is the point of interest/dominant element that you want to convey. Also a big portion of the image is out of focus. Moreover, the background is very distracting.

That is my initial impression and I hope it could help.

I got the A350, and really happy with it, I was going to get the 900 but since I'm kinda new with the digital reflex I wanted to start on a easy slop... but who knows maybe in a year or 2 I might get something better. Sony is great even the PS3, that I use for slideshows on my big full HD TV... Cheers to ya'll

I have a 350 and its great with old Minolta Glass. I have the Sony 18-200mmDT zoom for a walkaround and it does great. I didnt like Canon becauise of the plasticky feel and both the Canon and Nikon, I dont want to spend a fortune on image stabilized lenses. I am waiting for the Sony A950 or 1000 with the new Exmor sensors and I would like to get one eventually. Funny that Kodak makes cheap cameras, but Hasselblad uses its 50 megapixel sensor for its high end cameras! When all sensors are full frame and they finally figure out which sensor works the best then It will be time to buy a higher end Sony camera. Seems like every 6 months cheaper cameras are coming out with better sensors.

For many people, the camera brand loyalty is, well, pretty similar to PC vs Mac loyalties.

Sony, although catching up fast, is still a distance behind Canon and Nikon. This leads to much less third party lens and accessories support.

Dont think Sony is behind. Sony sensors are being adopted by Nikon and are going to exmor sensors. Kodak is a cheap camera, but tell me why Hasselblad is using their 50megapixel sensor for their highest end camera!
According to German photo magazine, Foto Magazin, the future Nikon D3x pro SLR camera will be fitted with the Sony image sensor that was presented a few months ago and that is expected to appear on the Sony Alpha 900 camera (high-end D-SLR from Sony). If this is confirmed, it would mean that the Nikon D3 will have a successor under the name of Nikon D3X (or D4) and that the Sony sensor is really of the utmost quality.

We knew that it was coming with 25 million pixels, but it could have been short on quality compared to the D3 (or D700) sensor because of its small (but many) pixels. For Nikon to accept to use this Sony sensor (and not a better one) at this level of products, they must be sure to have the best possible silicon piece: Pros want wonderful images, not only big figures (a big bunch of pixels).
