When I set out to buy a digital SLR I was first looking at the Nikon D40 ($499) and the Canon Rebel XTi ($599). I was turned off by the D40 due to it’s 6MP sensor and lack of JPEG (fine) + Raw capabilities. I ended up passing on the Canon Rebel XTI because of the complaints about the low-quality kit lens which would’ve added costs beyond it’s initial price tag.

Great Camera, Great Price!!!

Sony has really done it. This isn’t gonna be a technical review, just what I feel are strong points and weak points of this camera.

I simply cannot BELIEVE this kit is priced so cheap!

Prequel: I am coming from a strict Nikon background and due to having my $4000 kit(D80, 3 VR, 3 2.8 pro lenses, etc) stolen out of my car, am starting all over again.

After much research I chose this camera over upgrading to a Canon 40D. I am so glad that I did. The pictures are really amazing. The auto focus so much faster than the Xti which is what I had. I totally am in love with the results. The camera really is great. The kit lens is even really great.

Best digital camera I have ever owned.

I have had several digital cameras, and this is my first dslr. I love taking pictures with it, especially action shots. Super fast auto focus, choices of programs etc. are found on lots of dslr’s. The reason I bought this one is that it accepts Minolta af lenses and the anti-shake technology is in the camera and not in the lens. This makes additional lenses much more affordable.

Perfect camera for DSLR beginner

Before I purchased this camera I had read lots of reviews on other DSLR cameras in the $500 price bracket. On the day of purchasing the A200 I had actually chosen the Pentax K200D as the reviews for that camera were slightly more positive. However if you’re like me then you’ll want the biggest bang for your buck and since Amazon is selling the A200 with both the kit 70mm lens and the 300mm lens for only $549 this to me was absolutely the best offer.

Great DSLR for the price!

I spent months researching digital SLR cameras and initially bought the Nikon D60 but when I got it, the camera was too small for my hands so I returned it and got the a200 which was another camera I had been looking into. The camera takes really great pictures and is pretty easy to use and get the hang of. This camera is sized well for someone with big hands but the camera has plenty of features and quality for any hobbyist or beginning DSLR photographer. I bought the kit with the 18-70 and 70-300 lenses and I couldn’t be happier. I would recommend getting a second battery for the camera and eventually investing in an accessory flash. the pop flash is adequate for casual shooting but a good accessory flash will greatly improve the quality of your indoor and low light pictures. My next investment is going to be a prime 50mm lens since the kit lens has an f stop of 3.5 which doesn’t give you as much flexibility for low light shooting. Overall, a great product at a great price. Highly recommend. The 300 is the same camera but with live view. I believe you do lose accuracy in the viewfinder with the 300 so if live view is not important, get the 200.
