Well, I finally got the last optical viewfinder camera Sony has offered. Yes, I bought a used a580, and it arrived today. Since I'm busy at work I don't really have time to play with it, but I will this weekend, at my Uncle's 91st birthday party.
Happened to find a link that took me to it on evil-bay. Saw it sitting there for $400, buy now, with kit lens (no lens shade) and vertical grip. Since the others were starting auctions at that price body only, I took it. Blame it on the credit card company for recently giving me more headroom on my card!
Even though it came with the vertical grip, there is only 1 battery. Luckily I have spares, but I'm sure I'll now feel the need for a few more!
One thing I noticed was that it tend to fall asleep and takes a bit to wake up. Is there a setting to help?
I will have to read the manual, I guess!
Suggestions for settings are very welcome!
A couple of a350's, an a700 and now an a580, plus even more lenses.
