Sony Alpha 100 - Light metering|
According to Mark Goldstein: "In auto mode the Sony A100 delivers an impressively consistent performance, with the combination of nine point AF and 40-segment pattern metering ensuring that focus and exposure are, in the main, right on target. Having tried the camera with some older Minolta lenses, both tele and macro, alongside the ‘catch all' of the supplied 17-80mm kit lens, I can vouch that, although the latter delivers images which are detailed but ever so slightly soft, with the right lens combination it's capable of some stunning results.
Sony DSLR A100 - Responsiveness and Carl Zeiss
Mark continues: "That start up time of just over a second, mere 3fps capture, and loud shutter may not be good enough to please the pros, but it's a performance that's more than adequate given it's a DSLR intended for mass market consumption. The steady introductions of Carl Zeiss branded lenses will further cement its claim on the pockets of enthusiasts anyway, and Sony has reportedly invested such a hefty sum in making its DSLR brand successful that failure is not an option."

Mark Goldstein started his very active website PhotographyBLOG in January 2003. At first the one and only purpose was to let this site function as one of those popular web logs with Photography as main topic. But as we all know Photography is a pretty big subject to publish about so Mark decided to focus on some hot key points like mentioning all new introductions, reviews, reports from events like PMA and Photokina, sharing some impressive and creative photos and Mark's sole perspective of his feeling about this fascinating world of Digital Imaging. Mark is based in the UK, but his eagle-eye focuses global.
