    Yup, Sony lenses are more expensive as compared to the old Minolta days. But I doubt that the difference is 100% to those of C & N.
    Minolta. Konica Minolta. Sony

    It won't clash but you probably get a poorer image compared to only having one enabled at a time. Reason being that the counteracting mechnisims is not designed to communicate with each other, and thus each tries to compensate to whatever it thinks is correct without considering what the other is actually doing. By the way, do turn of any antishake mechnisim when mounted on tripod too.

    [QUOTE] Hmmm...will the shutter sound affect the picture quality? Why is softer shutter sound better?QUOTE]

    Softer shutter sound means that the mirror slap and shutter is damped >>> Minimized shutter and mirror slap results in lesser physical movement (shaking) of the camera when the shutter is released >>> image is sharper due to reduced camera movement.

    Ya...dats about it. Nikon D80 is rather damped IMHO...
    Dun blame the camera...blame the one behind the viewfinder :bsmilie:

    Hi,
    I have been using a Nikon Coolpix 5700 for the past 5 years. It's now giving way and I am thinking of buying a DSLR. I am looking at the Sony alpha, Olympus, Canon and the Nikon D40x.
    Any one can suggest which camera is the best buy?

    I'm a D80 user.. but if those were the only cameras u looking at.. I'd say go for 400D. If u are willing to spend a few extra bucks.. check out the D80...

    After you check out opinions in this forum.. go try out the cameras yourself at the shop, the camera must feel right for u. As for which shop to go, check the forum also.. dun go to those black shop and get chopped. I personally rec John 3:16 at funan 5th level.. not the cheapest in town, but u get all the time u want to try those cameras before deciding.
