I am also thinking of buying A300. But only very limited camera shops sell Sony Alpha in Kuching. Copal, for example, doesn't carry the brand.

Sony Style doesn't sell A300 as far as I am concern, they sell only A350, which basically has the same specs as A300 except having a higher MP.

The price of A300 kit set is RM1,999 according to Sony's website. However street price can go as low as RM1,700 based on the reply in some forums. But that's in West Malaysia of course. Not sure about the street price in Kuching. Might be slightly higher. But you need to find a camera shop that sells it in the first place.

No need to consider Singapore. It is so much expensive in Sg. Around S$1000+ (~RM2400). I'd rather top up S$200 to get a EOS 450D. Lol.

Is there any reason to go for Sony? I know it is getting very high profile nowadays .

Personally I feel nikon is a good choice for long tern upgrade. They are gaining lost ground now and their new cam are all getting a lot better. It is easier to upgrade if going for Nikon or canon.

The reason for the choice of Sony is that I have a number of Minolta lens including a fast 50mm, 100mm macro and a telephoto Sigma, 28-200mm.
The reason for the 18-70mm is of course the wide angle aspect of this lens bearing in mind the increase in focal lenght of x1.5 for my Minolta

Useful reply, though street prices without the guarantee. Quite honestly, I am not interested in A350, unless the price were much lower than its quoted one. The pursuit of megapixels, also, is of no special value. This suggests that KL may, therefore be my next port of call! Any thoughts on where to go in KL?
