As my profile says I own an old Minolta X-300s with two lenses: -Minolta 18-70mm Macro 1:4 -Vivitar 100-300mm Macro 1:5 Of course as you probably already guessed it's a film reflex. I'm thinking on going digital, and my budget allows me to have 2 big options: -Canon Rebel XTi with 18-55mm -Sony Alpha 200 18-70mm and 75-300mm I like a lot the A200 because it's compatible with Minolta plus it have a lot more zoom (but a little less macro), and it's superior in the spec sheet. However, must people tend to recommend the Rebel over the Sony. Could you give some advices and help? Sorry for my poor english, and thanks in advance.
