This is my last opportunity to make this poll with only ten selections before the SLTs and other new cameras start permeating through our user base. If you already have one, choose which camera you were using before you had it.

Feel free to comment on this poll if you use another camera not listed here, or if you use two different cameras just as frequently.

I use my A-550, mainly because the A-700 is in sony service!

There are models missing (Maxxum 7D and 5D; and the NEXs) Actually, I mostly use the NEX5 for my everyday shooting, and the A850 for work -some weeks I do more work than everyday shooting, but now the "season' it's almost over...

As worded, the survey asks which Sony camera is used for most of my shooting, so only one camera can be specified, and I checked the A700. If the question were which Sony cameras do you use, I could still only answer the A700, as my secondary DSLR is the KM 7D.

If my son-in-law (who does not post here) were to answer, he would reply that the A700 is his primary camera, and the A100 is his secondary camera.

I'm not sure if this info is what you were seeking, but I hope it is of some use to you.

With best wishes,

Hi Tom,

Question is: Which Alpha DSRL are you using?
AFAIK, Alpha was the Japanese name for the Dyxum (Europe) or Maxxum (Americas) models...

I edited the original prompts and added "DSLR" to make it more focused. Basically, I wanted to get a rough picture of the distribution of Alphas within a photography forum. It's not a very good survey, and has virtually no external validity since we're already a very limited population, being (1.) Alpha shooters (2.) who go online (3.) to talk and share photos and (4.) respond voluntarily to surveys.

It may not have the numbers to be statistically significant, but it is interesting to see the large bias toward A700 shooters. I was expecting more 350 and 550 users, just on gut instinct. Just shows how wrong my gut is :D . I guess the Nex adds further complexities. Are we moving in to a period when we have mutiliple camera bodies as part of our system (and not just as a back-up), of perhaps it was ever thus? I can see a time when I have a OVF Alpha FF, an APS-C EVF/SLT type, and a Nex (as well as the compact p&s / phone). Trips out will become even more complicated; it is not just which lenses shall I take, but which body and adapters too :shock: . I suppose it is all part of the consumer world we live in - buy more stuff!
Nex 5, Nex 6 (IR), A7M2, A99 and a bunch of lenses.

I also noticed absolutely no "+30" models.
