The DSLR-A100 camera, Sony's first high-end digital SLR, is expected to hit the market in July. The camera will be based on the Konica Minolta Maxxum/Dynax mount system, which means owners of those lenses will be able to use them on the new camera. Sony purchased a part of Konica Minolta's SLR business earlier this year.
