After reading lots of reviews here and abroad, I finally decided on a Sony a200. I just ordered one brand new in the box, with a Sony 18-70mm lens, and all accessories for $434 shipped. I was wondering how you guys and gals that own an a200 like them? What lenses do you prefer to use? I saw some good deals on Minolta Maxxum lenses, and they seem to get pretty good reviews. I am looking at getting a Minolta Maxxum 100-200mm lens. Finally, what types of filters work well? I found a Carl Zeiss 3 piece kit that looked like it would work well. Being an avid shooter (guns and cameras), I know that Zeiss makes some quality stuff. This is my first DSLR camera. I have only used P&S up to this point, and have never been really satisfied with the image quality I was able to achieve them. I can't wait to take my new a200 out and take some pics.
