Orange is indeed my country's national colour, but that didn't convince me to buy an Alpha
. The specs, the looks and my history with Sony did.
I must say though, I really do like the way Sony uses the orange colour and Alpha-logo in their ads and convention stands. I visited a photography convention last year here in Holland, and Sony's stand was by far, by not just miles, but by lightyears
, the best looking of them all. Huge, first of all, like 8 or 10 times as big as Nikon's stand (that is NOT an overstatement, it's true) and it just looked great with the whole Alpha-theme. Plus, there were lots of Alpha DSLRs to be tried out, as well as lenses, grips and Cyber Shot point&shoots/hybrids.
Can't wait to see this years stand!
