The Search is Over

Having spent weeks reading reviews in every photography magazine I could put my hands on, I finally took the plunge and bought this kit with a couple of extra lenses and external flash. The tilting liveview LCD is the best on the market and an absolute boon for my requirements. In auto mode the results are stunning enough and then you have so many professional options available to get even better.
The menu system is really excellent and very logical. Most things are where you'd expect to find them. My only real hesitation before buying a Sony Alpha was the limited selection of lenses but not only are there enough Sony and Minolta lenses to choose from, their quality is superb. The G-series and the Carl Zeiss units are as good as anything on the market. A great bonus of the A350 is that the anti-shake system is in the camera so it doesn't need special lenses to deal with it like some other makes do. All-in-all this camera is fabulous value for money and such a joy to use. For me it was worth the agonising process of evaluating all of the compettion to arrive at this winner.
Oh yes, nearly forgot - for Prime customers not paying delivery charges, Amazon's price is as good as it gets.
