Hello! I am looking to buy a Sony Alpha for the reason of already owning a Sony lens (DT 3.5-5.6/18-70mm) and 3 Minolta lenses. (Maxxum 50mm 1:1.7(22) / Maxxum 35-105mm 1:3.5(22)-4.5 / Maxxum 75-300mm 4.5-5.6). I set my budget and ended up having 2 options: 1.- Sony's Flagship. The a900. 2.- The well respected a700 and a beautiful Carl Zeiss Sonar T* 135mm 1.8 Telephoto lens. I own 2 Minolta flashes, a really small one and a medium size one, so the absence of a flash in the a900 is not a problem really. There are many very visible advantages a Sony a900 offers comparing it with the a700. But, will the lenses I already own give me all those advantages? Or should I expect better quality and satisfaction from the a700 and a Carl Zeiss joining my lens stack? I would really like to hear some opinions about the topic. What recommendations do you think I should take notice about? Thank you for your time.
