I am about to join the Sony clan. I hope it is OK to ask some basic questions.
I am hovering between an A850 and A900. I also have a lot of manual focus Nikon lenses. Is it wise to get an adapter to mount these lenses on the Sony?
Also can anyone tell me the advantages of the A850 over the A900. They are about the same price in the UK at the moment, but the A900 seems better in some respects (eg fps).
If you were going to get one lens to start with what would it be (in the 28-90mm sort of range - zoom or prime - I am thinking of a 35mm or 50mm, but open to suggestions)?
Are the older Minolta AF lenses worth buying given the high resolution of the Sony sensor or do you need more modern lenses to get the best out of it?
I really know very little about this system, but am hearing such good things about it. I have been using mainly film for the past couple of years, but have had a Nikon D100 and Canon 5D in the past. I am currently using a Panasonic G1 which is nice, but I would like bigger files sometimes. The Sonys look like great value in this regard.
