    Got to love the 50mm F1.7 minolta prime. That and the 28mm F2.0 are the only 2 lenses i need.

    How do you find the autofocus on the A300? I have the A450 and i have to watch it like a hawk as it seems to love focusing on anything with a straight edge. It's a royal PITA if i have a subject set forward of something like a wall.

    The auto focus overall is okay, it does try and focus on seemingly random things sometimes, but i usually set which region to focus on and i can get it to focus on what i want.

    What i really want now, is one of the newer alphas so i can shoot video, and still be able to use the lenses i already have.

    I use it for most of my color/tone corrections before i bring it into photoshop and crop/resize etc. It's a great replacement for the app that came with my camera. Only real reason i switched, the app i had doesn't work in a 64-bit environment at all, it made my computer lockup as soon as it would launch; so as soon as i unstialled it, everything was fine again.

    Can anyone give me some contenders for the best video camera under $1500? Looking mainly for quality. A nice DSLR with video could work, I know that's what a lot of the pro youtubers use (Epic Meal Time), but I'd like something a little easier to shoot with.

    My opinion? Cameras should do what they were meant for. Still photography or videography not both.
