    Ok my question is simple i am planning to open a small wedding buissness and do photography for weddings, quinceaneras, etc. I am planning on buying a Sony DSLR though, but i want to know which on would be good enough for these type of things ?

    Would the Sony 330 be good for this ? or which model number and up would be good 390, 500 ? please help me out here

    It's not whether the camera is good enough...it's whether or not you're good enough.

    LOL.. you have not even bought a camera and you are thinking about an event photography? An event it is something you cant redo! Do not experiment with people important day unless you know what you are doing! Stay with portraits!

    I personally will not invest on Sony (at least not this year) because lenses are very import when it comes to professional photography. Sony does make good lenses but it is a lot easier to get good lenses for Canon and Nikon. Also you can get inexpensive used equipment for both of these brands. If you are planning to take photography as your profession then you need to invest in the right direction. Just my 2 cents :)

    As mentioned you will have to be good enough to take wedding photos and you can be with time and a lot of hard work. Good Luck :)

    But sony has Image stablizer inside the body. So the high end lens may be cheaper with sony because they dont have to put stablizer. Just a thought!

    That's cool, I didn't know that.

    I doubt that it will be "optical" image stabilization? Optical is suppose to be better the electronic image stabilization.

    Yes it is "optical stablization" the only difference from lens stablization is that you can't see it working in the viewfinder.

    Didn't know that - time to switch to Sony :)

    It depends upon how long will it take for you to be ready for wedding photography. If you think you will be ready next week then go for the best you can afford.

    But the cost of those good Sony lens without stabilization is close to Canon version with IS.

    Sony 70-200mm f/2.8 G-Series $1799
    SAL70200G Sony 70-200mm f/2.8 G-Series a (Alpha) Mount Digital SLR Telephoto Zoom Lens with Hood.

    Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 IS $1899
    7042A002 Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM Image Stabilizer AutoFocus Telephoto Zoom Lens - USA
