The one I've got *now* is the next model up from the one that broke, I wouldn't mind that one again but it seems to have been discontinued.Originally Posted by ukwdwnut, post: 207953
From all the reviews I read, the grip is probably the only gripe.
The lens is definately better quality, with a faster and more accurate auto focus. I haven't noticed any difference in the build quality of the 2 lenses and I have been able to handle them side by side as my wife now has an A200 & A450 (Which came with the 18-55mm).
Pretty much everything else is the same as the A200 with just a few firmware tweeks to make it more `user friendly`
The camera is pretty much a sideways step from the a200, but the lens is definately an upgrade.
I still had the charger from the a200 as well as the battery so I put it on eBay... last time I checked it was on £3.60.. which I expected. It had 2 minutes left and I was packing it away (I always pack it early and then write address on later) and refreshed the page and it was on £21.00!!
