Thanks Harry. I had about 4 hours last night to wander the Magic Kingdom and do nothing but snap pictures do I got a bunch of great shots : )

I did have to take this one shot about 4 times because every time a group would walk by the boardwalk would vibrate and blur the shot

Cool Alpha

I am leaning towards getting Lightroom 4 for processing. My 1st one that I will be buying. I have read a couple of comments that Sony's raw format (ARW) doesn't work with Lightroom 4. As a few other on hear, I am currently using A55 and am looking to upgrade to A77 or A99. Hopefully the A99.

Anyway, is that comment true or is it just people that don't know what they are talking about?

Lightroom works just fine with Sony cameras. Just with newer cameras, you sometimes need to wait for a software update. For example, the Sony Rx100 had to wait a couple months for Lightroom 4.2, which now works like a charm. I know it supports the A55. As the A99 is brand new, it may not have support yet.
I suggest starting with the 30 day free trial.

Mike, this is one of my favorite shots. I REALLY need one of these shots. Where is everybody?

I also vote for LR4. It will work for the A99 once they update it. Its like that with all new cameras even the new D600 I think.

Thanks Harry.The park was very quiet Tuesday morning while I was there for a few hours so crowds were pretty much no issue then. There were a few people behind me that took a group pic once I was done. I was going for a creepy dark foggy vibe with the shadows and the mist, I pulled it off a little but not as much as I would have liked. Still a great shot though

Wondering whether the beercan would be a nice and cheap step up, whether I should just stick where I am, or wait till I'm ready to spend more, and possibly get something like the Tamron 70-300/4.5-5.6 for a bit more money.
I have the 70-210 beercan although I never used it a lot since DH thought I needed the 70-200 f/2.8 for my BD shortly after I got the beercan. I wasn't exactly going to say no! I do have and use a few of the Maxxum lenses and my one comment would be on the CA that is more likely to occur (and which I haven't gotten good at removing in post processing). My understanding is the coating on the lenses were of course not done for digital so you can get that effect - but it's not always prominent and depends on what you are shooting. I really ought to try the beercan on the A77 and see what I get. I do use the Maxxum lenses on the NEX a fair amount because of their more compact design compared to new lenses. I really liked the 100-200mm f/4-4.5 and used it quite a bit but mine was smacked around when DH was gathering stuff in case we needed to evacuate from an oncoming wildfire last winter. I haven't test yet to see if the hole at the side of the lens is going to affect the picture or not. I saw a comment to you about resolving power but IMO there are many of the Maxxum lenses that easily hold up in that regard and would expect the beercan to be one of them.

They don't know what their talking about.

As was mentioned when new cameras are released it sometimes takes Adobe a little while to update for them but all the current Sony cameras including at A77 and A99 are currently supported.

Thanks for the feedback. As I can get a beercan for under $200.. or even $100... it's not exactly high risk.
Its 1 of the things I like about the Sony mount --- especially with its in-camera stabilization, the ability to use the really old fairly cheap lenses!

Truthfully, between the Minolta 50mm 1.7, and the beercan..... I may be able to cover most of my focal range, at very high quality ---- With 2 lenses that cost less than $300 combined on the used market.

But of lenses I'm considering upgrading to --
The Tamron 70-300 f/4-5.6 -- As eventually I'm going to want 300mm of reach. As my kids get older and play more sports, and also if I take an Alaska cruise next year, and want more reach for wildlife.
And contemplating the Tamron 17-50/f2.8 -- just as an overall kit upgrade.

But then considering just using my Sony kit lens for wide angle, the 50mm/1.7 for a mid range prime, and the beercan..... and really covering my focal length on a day to day basis, without spending much money at all. Then maybe renting a really good zoom for the Alaska cruise.

I shot all of these with my Tamron 17-50mm F/2.8 XR Di-II LD I love this lens and go back and forth between that and my fishey as my favorite go to lens. If your looking to pick up an upgrade over the kits lens the Tamron gets my vote
