I was just curious. My wife used to shoot with a Minolta Maxxum 9xi. She switched to a Sony A-100 a year ago. Since then I got addicted to photography and was told the Minolta was mine to play with so I could decide if I liked the hobby enuf to warrant purchasing a dslr of my own. Well on boxing day this year I became the owner of an A-200. Now for my question. I have noticed that my images turned out better on the Minolta than with the A-200. Is this because I was more cautious in choosing my images or could it have something to do with the older lenses that we are using?
