probably more a question for Doc Austin, but if anyone else can answer, it's appreciated!!
so as a sony A200 owner, i have always wanted to get the a900, or the a700.
well, i bought a used a700 on monday, which came yesterday. the kit lens with it (18-70 which i already have) the previous owner said had a lazy iris. i wasn't bothered as i already have this lens, but i am curious as to what that is. is that the slightly slower time it takes to focus? as that's what i have noticed.
my main question is this: the shutter sounds different to my a200, is this normal??
obviously having been so used to the a200 i'm probably being paranoid, as it works perfectly fine!!
i took a pic of an object with both cameras using the same lens and the pics are almost identical.
having never bought a used camera before, i hope i've got a good one!!
