First senior session with the a900 today. The good: The camera is fantastic for portraits... especially scenes with lots of DR. Intelligent preview was very helpful in getting strobe/ambient levels tweaked.
The Bad: My a900 took a fall of about 3 feet onto rock
More good: It kept on shooting like nothing had happened
(Sucks that it has a few scratches though!)
I shoot almost exclusively young ladies at the high-school level... as young men seem to hate being in front of the camera. These two young men were from the same "family". One was an actual member, the other a foreign exchange student from Seoul. Very reserved guys, so we decided to go a bit "laid-back" and fashionable. I'm still looking at some medium format stuff to compliment the a900 kit... but these look pretty good to me. The quasi-mf look and hand-holdability are just great.
Overall, very enjoyable. All with the sigma 50/1.4 and the a900... Alien Bee AB400 strobe triggered with pocketwizards... or just ambient light and reflector.
