January 30 2008


Sony introduces a couple of new DSLRs with live view, plus the A200 from earlier in the month.  They also “announced” the 24-70mm F/2.8 and the 70-300 F/4.5-5.6 G SSM lens, which were announced several months ago, the latter appearing in the lens brochure put out by Sony for a while now.  I don’t know why everybody’s all excited over this old news.  I’ve put up a page with screen-sized shots of the two lenses, and the two cameras.  The A300-350 are the same in appearance, the only real difference is the model name and megapixel count on the left-hand side. Check
