I'd love some feedback on a couple of accessories I have on my wish list. Basically, I'm looking to improve the handling of my A850 in the following circumstances:
1. With the camera near the ground, I thought an angle finder would save my back. The Sony model is 10x the price of the off-brand offerings on Ebay. I'm thinking the Sony is probably optically superior and a better match for the A850's viewfinder. Has anyone tried either or both?
2. Using the camera vertically with a heavy zoom e.g. 80-200G, I find it much harder to hold the camera steady without something to lean on. Horizontally, I find the combination just fine. The genuine vertical grip is quite expensive but looks perfect for me. Again, I'd appreciate your thoughts.
