This would merely be a beginners camera for me

I've been reading that the Pentax Takumars can yellow with age, but leaving them in the sun for a couple of weeks clears the lens. Some people actually like the warm cast the yellow gives.

Not a big deal at all if you intend to get only a handful of accessories, but if you were planning on building up a wide lens set - even over the next several years - you should be prepared to drop more coin.

That or my understanding of what your talking about is locking in an exposure that your currently looking at when taking a still, I thought this could be achieved by setting an exposure manually... so the same result can be achieved with the 230, just through more setup and knowing what exposure you want???
from my understand the Sony has a few features (Stead Shot for one) that is supposed to be much better than Nikons or Rebels competition to the a230.

As I get it, in-camera stabilization is not as good as in-lens stabilization; however, some is better than none, of course (and I don't even own any VR lenses, and have yet to feel any need for the feature; just goes to show it's more important to know your own wants and needs than to spend a lot of money on gear without a clear idea of your goal).
