There’s something odd about reviewing a camera that just works: There’s not that much to say. Sony’s former Minolta team has hit on a design with all three of the latest cameras that is so easy to approach and use that it’s hard to come up with anything clever. It reminds me a lot of the switch between PC and Mac. I used to love tweaking MS-DOS and Windows to eek out a little more speed, but the Mac just worked, and worked well. Suddenly I had to focus on getting stuff done with my computer, rather than messing with settings to make a window pop up faster. The consumer Alpha cameras are a lot like that.
