comment What gear for Sony off-camera flash sync with TTL?
@StanRogers that's all good info. I'm still confused, though. If I got one of the off-brand flashes that don't do wireless TTL, will a cable still get me TTL or no? If I go with a non-TTL flash like the Yongnuo, what gear do I need to fire it off-camera?

@mattdm Thanks for the info; I was not aware of that brand trickery. I was only using that flash as an example of a flash that has TTL. Not necessarily the model I'm going after, though it is on my list.

comment Sigma EF610 flash compared to Sony HVL-F43AM
Thx for the input; very helpful, although I must admit that some of it is over my head. I am pretty budget conscious since photography is turning out to be a very expensive hobby. :-) Do you think I'd be able to find the Minolta 3600 / 5600 for a comparable price to the current market offerings? Also, let's say the Sigma is not fully compatible. What would that means from a practical perspective? What would I not be able to do without those features?;

comment Do I need a model release to post a photo on an online portfolio?
@Itai The woman is definitely identifiable but she takes up only a small portion of the frame. She is standing in front of a large waterfall which takes up most of the frame.

comment Do I need a model release to post a photo on an online portfolio?
I am aware that I should ask a lawyer if I wanted to be certain. However, since I'm not using the pic for anything professional (I'm just a hobbyist photographer), I'm not going to pay legal fees. My reading of various interpretations of US law by photographers suggest that I don't need a model release for online, non-commercial display of someone photographed in a public park. But if there is some doubt, then I'll leave the photo out because I don't want any trouble. +1 for looking at SmugMug's ToS that is a good point.

comment Any reason to buy stock lens for Sony Alpha if I already have good Minolta Maxxum lenses?
@RussellMcMahon the example shots really hammer home the difference. Thanks.

This is a lot of great info. I think you have convinced me to shell out the extra $100 for the kit lens.

I did not realize that the crop factor will change the "effective focal length". It sounds like it may be worth it to get the 18-55 for the $100 as I definitely do use the wider focal length of my current 28-80. Thanks for the info.
