Will you buy a Sony A100? — First Alphatracks poll

I’ve been pleased with the traffic to the site — and now that I’m seeing traffic, I thought a weekly poll would be a good way to see how the readership thinks. As long as the readership shows interest, I intend to add a new poll each week.

The question for this week is a natural for this site — do you intend to buy a Sony A100? The Alpha 100 is just starting to ship, so I think it will be interesting to see what everyone’s plans are for the new pice of hardware.

The poll will appear in the sidebar, and you can see immediately how everyone is voting. I’m using the Democracy WordPress plugin by Jalenack and they say it checks IP addresses to prevent users from voting more than once. No stuffing the ballot box at Alphatracks!

Democracy WordPress Plugin.

So let’s here what your intentions are. Are you waiting switching or pre-ordering? If you want to share more than a simple vote, go ahead and post your ballot, then leave a comment as to why you are or are not considering an A100. If you are buying an A100 — tell us why. If you won’t be buying an A100 we would like to know that as well.

I’ll continue my story about how I got started shooting with Minolta in the next post. Until then, stay focused!
