Its A200s price with the kit, i quite didnt like the guy, he did not tell me why i should be buying the A230 and not the A200, The 230 is not yet with them. it will take them atleast 2 months to get it( how sad). i kinda like your cam, i am not in a mood to venture into expensive territory, and buying the same camera means getting an interactive mannual along, You!

Probably the guy doesn't know what A230 has to offer since he may not have seen one yet.. Moreover, they all have this 'know it all' attitude and they just bullsh** that in front of customers.

It will be worth it if you can find some old Minolta glasses to use with the Alphas. You can get many for cheap prices (they are going up) from e-bay US.

I inquired about the A200 one month back at Sony World Plamoodu & got the reply that they have took it off display as they are waiting for the A230. But Pramod, why Sony? And about the attitude of the sales people, well they are the same everywhere (in Tvm) irrespective of the brand.

@clevermax - nice pics of the meet. Feeling sorry that I had to miss this one. Veli is always a favourite.
OT - You were doing some surgery on the lens, IIRC. What happened?

@crazybiker46 - nice place you have put the stickers.

@jkdas - where are my stickers, pal?

clevermax didn't tried the surgery on the lens since he was not in the "max clever" mood.

We can have a meet this weekend, what say folks?

@Nutty, the surgery is postponed until I get some solitude at home. Doing that with my daughter around is not a good idea. By the way, the fungus shows no signs of spreading further, so I can wait...

@clevermax - I understand your position, boss! On another tangent, giving the lens for surgery to your daughter may be a good idea. But seriously, good to hear that the fungus is not spreading. I usually give my camera for cleaning (Sony H5) at Gany Camera Works (East Fort). I am not sure whether they are capable of cleaning DSlr lenses, but may be you could explore that option also.

OT - Didn't see any photos of your Punto here. Pl. post the link if you have posted the photos here.
