    What? :lmao: How do you figure. Are we talking about pro's or someone that's buying their first DSLR? Because if it's the latter the Sony is the better option. Having a live view EVF takes all the guess work out of it and drastically reduces the learning curve.

    As far as your lens argument, I just looked up 70-200's for sony and cannon. The cannon glass with IS is $500 more than the 70-200 from sony. :lmao: that has to be considered since all A-mount lenses effectively have IS.

    The only think you might be right about is the availability of used equipment.

    okay now since im sticking with Sony alpha again
    i have to choose between a37 or a390 or a450 or a700 (I know that it has CCD sensor but maybe it will take better pics cuz its in a better camer compared to the a37 ?? *just wonderin*)
    not to mention that the EVF of the a37 is so bad 800x600 :/
    and lcd has horrible resolution aswell

    so somebody advise me im losing my mind here ^^

    i need camera that takes pro pictures, and im good with technology cuz im a geek :D (Developer) so i will adjust quickly with the camera

    Note: I wont be changing the lens soon.
    If you guys found any cheap used sony camera for sale plz link me ^^ (anywhere in europe tho)




    didnt like canon or nikon starters cameras sorry tyler :/

    You want something that has the Live-mos technology. This is where you get a real time display of what the final picture will be like. Only the a37 has this of the cameras you listed. So if you want something better it will require a higher investment. I would recommend something like the a580 if you can find one or an a65 or a77. The a580 still has a ovf with a pentaprism where the other two are evf.

    If you wait a few weeks the A58 will be released/announced.


    New A38 was to be the same but I think at last minute they pulled it.


    Ultimately if both of these are out on 20th or at least announced all previous models should drop in price. May help you get better savings for the entry levels.

    I have the A55 and love it, looking to get A78 once released.

    Do you mean SLTs? I thought Sony had stopped making DSLRs

    I agree with the DSLR/SLT idea. You open up for many more options. There really aren't any bad cameras out there. I would be looking at the a77 or D7000. Try and get body only and invest in better than a kit lens.

    Maybe Nikon, but I wouldn't recommend a canon. Their IQ is bad in comparison to Sony and Nikon. It's a fact. Their Pro cameras don't even have AF light assist lol

    If you don't want an SLT and want to stick ti DSLR, go for the Nikon. Don't even consider a Canon

    No Sony only makes SLTs I believe the a580 was the last reflex mirror camera they made. For some reason they started refering to the SLTs as DSLRs after the a580 was discontinued even though they do not have reflex mirrors.
