Sony A550 first impressions and sample pictures
The Alpha A550 has been generating its fair share of interest among photographers in the photo-blogo-sphere, starting with a first impressions post at Luminous Landscape, which found the camera interesting enough to check out! If you are a die-hard A550 fan, don't read his comments about the viewfinder :)
Next, it is time for sample pictures! LensTip.com has posted 30 sample pictures, including a nine-picture ISO comparison set, along with a test of the same scene with Auto-HDR, DR and normal. To get the full-size sample, click on each picture, but please use their bandwidth responsibly. The pictures were taken either with the 70-400mm or the 18-55 SAL lenses.
Another set of samples was posted at DC-Fever, and can be discussed and seen via the dpreview forums, which includes a Rapidshare link for those who can't wait for the slow downloads.
