This camera is already on my camera post list as I tried the Alpha Sweet S while in Japan. It is another version that was distributed in Europe hence the name change. There is one difference, this one does not have a panoramic switch on the side. That wasn’t enough for me to make a whole new post. My new example is in perfect condition, with no yellowing in the pentaprism due to the adhesive.
Along with this camera and the kit lens, a 35-80mm zoom lens, I was given a couple of prime lenses and another zoom. The prime lenses were 28mm and 50mm. I kept the 28mm on for most of the Fuji 100 roll I loaded to walk around Norwich.
I found Norwich to be a lovely place, very friendly. I had never been before but will go back at some point as I didn’t even get to see the market.
As I suspected, this camera and the lenses worked perfectly. It is an awesome little camera, entry-level or not, it is a bargain of a camera…if the battery lid isn’t damaged as many of them are.
Here are my photos from Norwich.
I am tempted to keep this over the Canon 3000 eos as I now have more lenses and spare bodies for the Minolta system.
