One of the more expensive three million pixel camera but mention Carl Zeiss lens to any photo enthusiast and he'll tell you it's worth the cash. Sony teamed up with Carl Zeiss to marry their electronics with the finest maker of lenses. These lenses, used on Hasselblad and Contax cameras, deliver stunning edge to edge resolution so results should be better than the competitors. Some magazine tests have suggested this not to be the case, but we can't fault the optical quality. It's main problem is the sluggish AF making it hard to take pictures quickly.
