If you're interested, I have a 50m-200m lens (Sony) that I'm not gonna use...

You have my profile, contact me if interested

Allah e3afek bro :)

Heh, long story short... I paid for them but my friend bought them for me from UK. Costs around 20% less than online orders.

Yes yes yes... 7asawiya mentality at its best. ;)

No thanks, I already have Tamron 70-300mm which covers a decent focal length. :)

Yours is Sigma, right?

اي عادي حتى أنا أسوي جذي وما فيني عرج حساوي كلش :P

يا معود عالأقل تضمن الشي يوصل لك، مو مثل التبن (إكسكيوزمي) يو شوب وي شب ضيعولي شغلة طلبتها قبل شهرين، ولا أختهم أرامكس اللي أردى منهم
كلما أشتهي أطلب شي أهون، أخاف يضيعونه لي

Never tried posta plus. Let me know if it's good when you get the chance to use their service.

Yep, it's better because it has built-in anti-shake system.

How are Sony cameras? Our small camcorder is a sony but for some reason (probably advertising) I don't take them seriously for photography. Is it true they bought Minolta?

Cool zoom lens to have with you... Post some shots.

Bu Yousef:
Allah ebarik fek, thanks.

It's A-Mazing. The A700 is a semi-pro camera and it performs outstandingly between both worlds, whether for quick random shots or extreme complicated shots.

I personally went for Sony because, as you mentioned, it acquired Minolta thus their DSLRs have a large variety of lenses and cheap too. But the most important feature is having built-in image stabilizer.

I will review it as soon as possible with some shots. Stay tuned. :)

Wow mabrook!

1- I'm surprised the budget can handle it.

2- Is that why you're not answering my phone calls?

I have canon 50d never had a problem with it!

MacaholiQ8 said...

Art? I'm flattered. Soon inshallah. :)

Bu Yousef:
Soon inshallah. :)

Thank you! :)

1- I had a separate budget for this one. :P
2- Ahh no sorry that day I had no credit on my cellphone. :/

Canon and Nikon are the best but Sony can tag along since they bought Konica Minolta. Besides it has built-in image stabilizer which makes it easier to choose new lenses.

Thanks man. I'm sure I will. ;)
