Sony A700

Have just started to get acquainted with a new camera. For about $900 shipped to Venezuela, I am quite impressed. Seeing some high iso portraits here, I decided to try it as well. I can´t compete with full frame, but was surprised at how well it works. I have still only taken a couple of dozen test shots, and my old Sigma 24-135 probably does not do the camera justice, but here are a couple of snaps.
f/4 1/100 180mm equiv. iso1600

This guy had just been clobbered by a falling mango-
f4.5 1/30 105mm equiv. iso 6400 I am used to the in camera IS, so that is no surprise, but had expected 6400 to be useless.
