Sony gives you what you pay for, and then so much more.

Summary: First off, if you want a large sensor camera and you're on a really tight budget, this has to be the best option. It does have some negatives due to the price, but as a package this camera performs amazingly and offers insane value.
Summary: Amazing seller first of all. Secondly this is an awesome step up from my point and shoot Sony (which I love and won't go to any other brand). I have a friend with a Nikon dslr and this takes WAY better pictures in auto modes. We compared on a recent backpacking trip!
Excerpt: I got this camera as a budget replacement for a Rebel T1i, thinking I was downgrading on all specs but Megapixels. When I did the first test pics I was simplyt amazed how clear and sharp the images are. Its highly recommended!
Excerpt: Bought this body to use it with manual lenses cause I find aperture rings give better ergonomics. The e-mount, having the smallest flange focal distance, is compatable, manually, with almost every fullframe or crop lens ever made.
Summary: Let me just say that I did not intend to buy this camera. I actually do not like many Sony products (too many bad experiences with them doing proprietary things on former products i owned). Besides, I already have a Nikon DSLR and Fuji HS-50 bridge camera..
This Camera Does a Fine Job for Serious Recreational Photographers

Summary: This model Sony, though economically priced, does everything I need. The 20 mpx pics produced are clear and the color true. I didn't find the negative reviews of the eye viewer or rear display resolution to amount to much. But I'm not a professional photographer.
Summary: I just recently bought the Sony a3000 and I love it. First let me say that the sensor and the 18 -55mm kit lens that comes with it is superb. It's photo performance is great for the price. The only drawback in my view is the LCD viewer.
Summary: Just recieved mine and simply had to snap a few pictures.. Great little camera for a user that's non pro.. Even a camera backup for semi pro. The images are really that good. I haven't had time to go through all the menus, but those that I have, they are easy to find and navigate..
