Short Report: Sony DSLR-A100

This new entry into the D-SLR category offers a lot of features at an affordable price

The A100 is a compact digital SLR that shows its lineage back to the Konica Minolta digital SLRs-its Sony mount is based on the Minolta Maxxum lens mount. Sony has re-engineered many Minolta lenses and created new lenses of its own so that the camera is complemented by an impressive system of 19 lenses. In addition, a series of high-quality Carl Zeiss lenses will be offered later this year.
