    Default Sony camera and Carl Zesis

    Bros & Sis

    Does it make sense for a new bird getting into DSLR to get into Sony system just because of able to use Carl Zesis lenses and get auto focus (i.e compatible)?

    Depends on what CZ lenses mean to you

    Each brand has its strengths and weakness in lens design, coating, rendition, etc

    Being a newbie, are you even able to spend so much on CZ glass ?

    Let's be realistic, CZ lenses are not really that expensive. Nikon pro lenses and Canon L lenses cost just as much if not more. Even Olympus pro lenses cost >$2k each.

    Why not? It's a big appeal, and the DSLR cameras are not bad and quite feature-packed.

    If you want AF CZ lenses then i don't see why not. Thou there is so much more into Sony system than just those CZ lenses.

    Very dangerous poison... Zeiss or vintage Minolta glass... something very addictive there.

    Rebadge of Leica, Minolta used to help them design and build lenses. It's the 70-210 f/4 Leitz lens.
