Sony new DSLR camera price in Malaysia

27 Jul

It’s in the paper today. Or probably it has been there but I never notice earlier? :)

Suggested retail price at RM3,499. The price of the new Sony Alpha DSLR 100/K which has 10 megapixel, super steady shot and did I see Carl Zeiss Lense too? (price different, of course)


Product Description
Enjoy the all-new Sony® α (alpha) DSLR-A100K camera with an amazing all-around lens to get you started. Included in this kit is the versatile new SAL-1870 lens. This standard lens easily handles the full range of shots you’ll take most often—but there’s nothing “standard” about its advanced optical design. In 35mm equivalent, it covers wide-angle 27mm to 105mm midrange telephoto for snapshots, portraits, interiors and more—an excellent all-around lens to travel with.The Sony® α (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera is an instant classic: the top-quality 10 MP DSLR system camera that builds on a two-decade legacy of Minolta photographic leadership, accepts 20 years of A-mount lenses sold worldwide—and introduces Sony® imaging innovations like high-sensitivity shooting with Super SteadyShot® in-camera image stabilization, Dynamic Range Optimizer to automatically increase detail in bright and dark picture areas, new Anti-Dust technology to keep the CCD imager clean for better pictures, and Eye-Start® Autofocus system for faster camera response.

It is not the camera I am eyeing. It is the lenses. The macro lense which I am longing. For the cousin of this camera, my Konica-Minolta Dynax 5D. Right now, I took close-up shots with my 18-70mm lense, adjust to 70mm for macro. It doesn’t give me the kind of feel I wanted. Not to mention the chore of adjusting the aperture and getting that depth of field just right yadda yadda yadda. But a macro lenses costs RM1,600. *sigh* Sorry for the whining. :)

    I recommend the Tamron 90mm Di, not sure if it has a mount for your camera.

    Also you can check out the new Tamron 70-300mm with macro function between 180-300mm, it’s only about RM650. It produces good 1:2 macro results.
