I have a new camera! I finally went out and bought a digital body to replace the old 35mm I have been shooting with since I was in college… I love shooting 35mm but without a dark room some of the fun was lost, so I had to make the move to digital. Seeing that all my lenses are based on the Minolta brand the only real choice I had (if I wanted to keep using the lenses) was the Sony Alpha. The Alpha series has several different cameras and I ended up settling for the 450 which is one of the newer cameras that they are offering. It can do everything I need it to and I have been really happy with it so far.
