Sony Alpha a100 review

Value For Money

More for the Money

Like Konica Minolta cameras, the Sony Alpha 100 features more technology than most of its counterparts. At this moment in time, it stands head and shoulders above its nearest-priced competitors, most of which are 6MP or 8MP models. It also features built-in image stabilisation, which is sure to appeal to some people, and is certainly more cost-effective than buying expensive stabilised lenses.

Unfortunately the build quality, while good, fails to match that of the Nikon D70s or the Olympus E330, say – the problem is, it is essentially a mid-market model, in an entry-level body.
