no level gauge

Excerpt: Definitely clearer and sharper and higher resolution than my NEX6, but there is no level gauge and when one is taking pictures of the ocean (particularly at night), a level gauge saves a lot of post processing. I will probably return this and wait until I can afford the a7 line.
Excerpt: Love the camera - hate the lens! The 16-50 is a soft lens on good days, an awful lens on cloudy or overcast days. I had the "best" results using the camera in Aperture priority mode at f8. I photograph architectural subjects with my Nikon 810 most of the time.
Summary: I'm only giving this product three stars at this time. That's because the kit I received had a defective lens, and I wasn't able to really take any pictures with it. Everything that I've read would leave me to believe that this is a great camera though.
Excerpt: I am by no stretch a skilled photographer but I do spend a lot of time trying. Bought this camera to use for travelling instead of my Canon 70D. I have just scratched the surface but here is my experience so far with the camera & 16-70 lens; * Lots of menu options require research & experimentation...
Pros: Fast Shutter Speed, Small / Compact
Cons: Complicated Controls, Lag / Shutter Delay, Poor in Low Light, Short Battery Life
Excerpt: Briefly, this is the most capable camera I've ever owned and I'm leaving a Canon 5DII system. The weight enables me to take it anywhere, the Zeiss 16-70 lens is sharp and responsive for my needs.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Summary: The people I bought it from are awesome. It included the memory card (which I didn't expect) and solar caps which is great. Unfortunately my issues are with the product itself. Does anyone else have issues with A or S mode? When I want to control just the aperture, the camera's f-stops seem off.
Excerpt: Like many things in life, what is important is in the details. Sony has once again produced a great product. The Alpha a6000 produces crisp edges to main focal points. The grab focus feature allows you keep the focus on specific moving objects or persons while filming.
Excerpt: I have used this camera very extensively now to make some judgement. I like the layout and position of buttons and dials, as well as the menu, even though I think Fuji X-T1 has a better layout and menu.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Small / Compact
Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, Poor in Low Light, Short Battery Life

Summary: I love the camera and most of what was included with the bundle. I had an issue with the extra battery it came with, was not charging at all no matter how long I had it charging. I am a beginner in the dslr world, but this is really user friendly. The pictures turn out so crisp and clear!
Excerpt: 11fps and quick focus makes me happy capturing my kids playing. I just wish the battery life would have been better. I just bought another battery pack to take care of that. You just cannot beat the features it gives at that cost. An extra battery pack never hurts anyway.
