All of my pics posted here are from a Sony A200 with old classic Minolta lens like the Big Beercan hand held IS with the sharpness and contrast set at +3 and neutral color and spot metering shooting at Aperture Priority from F7.1-F9 and I hardly touch them up on

You have to understand the cameras strengths and use them in the shot composition with the right lighting
There is nothing wrong with spending less money for great results I have eight Minolta lens that cost me less than $200 apiece
for different situations. I just bought short lens for $30m and a big zoom for $75
Do not buy the camera with the kit lens which sucks..pay a little and get the Tamron/Sony 18-250..you won't be sorry

Recently I have been buying locally used gear and have ocassionally gone to Adorama for a couple of lens and I will buy from KEH asthey have a better selection and more honest pricing and grading of lens. For the camera, I think Best Buy will have the best deal
in their sales flyer..I would buy the A350 because it has live view and 14 megapixels.. has few steps up from my A200 is a little faster and clearer for cropping.. do not buy the Sony 75-300 silver as it is crap look for the Minolta Beer can 70-210 F4 or Minolta big beercan 75-300 1986-1991 vintage or get the $500 Minolta 100-400 from KEH and you will keep up with and surpass the Jones
Or if you are a family man for all around just one lens the Tamron/Sony 18-250mm lens...and buy a 1.4 Teleconveter

Hope to see some pics from you soon
