Roger, Caister,Norfolk Experienced amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Having been wedded to a Canon EOS for many years, moving to digital was a fraught experience until I found the Panasonic Lumix which supassed all of my expectations apart from shutter speed, so I thought, until I invested in the Sony Alpha 550, now I realise what I have been missing all these years, ease of operation,good range of programmes, fast shutter speeds, quick auto focusing and pinpoint clarity of photo with a good range of telephoto lens to choose from. I prefer a chunky good weight camera to these lightweight ones and this fitted the bill well, without being over the top. I take a lot of wildlife and animal photos where speed and clarity are essential, this has not let me down in any way. I have yet to explore all of the programs but what I have seen so far I would highly recommend.
Bad points:
No found so far, apart from perhaps having to invest in a LCD cover to protect the screen, whereas the Lumix has one built in by reversing the screen.
