  • I don’t understand why so many reviewers say that SONY would be 1st but rank them second because of SONY’s limited lens support. Is it that they don’t know that the entire line of legendary MINOLTA MAXXUM AF lenses work wonderfully on the Sony cameras, or did they just forget?

  • Laurence Chong

    Sony wanted to reward their loyal supporters with the best in lens. With the increase in demand with their latest production in A77 understand the famous Carl Zeiss is co-operating with Sony to provide better lens for their support to the new models like A77 to compete with rest of the brands complying to the demand of better photography technology to stay on top. Sony is catching up with brands like Canon and Nikon and with better lens and technology the photography world is an arena for the best. Well done Sony!
