    There've been a couple of help threads like this in the past week or two, you're probably best doing a quick search and reading through them for advice.

    Anyone else noticed that the weather warms up, skirts get shorter, tops get lower and then the young lads decide they want new cameras?

    Connection there somewhere? :whistling:

    From the reviews I've read the camera is good but the standard lens that comes with it is pants. This means you'd end up paying out a load more for a decent lens.

    I have a A200 + kit lens (plus I bought a couple of lenses and flash as well).

    I love it and the kit lens is great unless your an expert (which I definitely am not). I recently took over 450 photos at my friends wedding (and still had around 40% left in the battery) - one of the joys of no Liveview = better battery life.

    I bought mine when they were 249 at Amazon and never regretted it. I also get image stability by default as its built into the body not the lens.

    I noticed that Canon and Nikon seem to have a lot more extras at slightly cheaper than the Sony, but I'm happy with mine and I am gobsmacked at the quality - changed the way I take pictures. Make sure you get a good card (A200 uses CF and I have an Extreme III which makes a real difference - specially in JPEG at 3 frames per second)...

    good luck

    If it's stocked at Argos you may as well buy it, try it, & if you don't like it, return it!

    Not if you pick up some old Minolta lenses off ebay. They'll fit an A200 and can be picked up quite cheaply.

    So would you say the Sony DSLR-A200K is worth the price tag ?

    This is also a cracking deal though if it has warranty with it.
