Great pictures, but slow to focus

  • Excerpt: I am a simple point and shoot kind of person (canon 90) and wanted a new camera with better zoom for <$ for a trip to Alaska. Spoke with customer service and they walked thru the features of several cameras. I selected this one after reading every review I could find. I also purchased the second lens which I used that the entire time.I have mixed feelings.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality
  • Cons: Slow to focus, Slow To Start-up

Fine camera, great for the money

  • Excerpt: I bought this in Jinotega, NI, for about what it would have cost me to import it from the US. It's available world wide and is a great introduction to better photography with interchangeable lenses and a larger image file. I've used mine with Sony 16mm f/2.8, the kit zoom (18-55mm) that came with it, and with the Sony 35mm f/1.8 and the Zeiss/Sony 24mm f/1.8.

The camera and the standard lens are good but the wide angle and telephoto lenses are disappointing

Neoheurist, Amazon

  • Summary: The camera's controls are very easy to learn quickly and do a good job for you. For the price I would say that the base package is a good deal. The two add-on lenses in the package are "hoakie" because you need to remove the UV filter from the standard lens to attach an adapter and either add-on lens (it takes a couple of minutes to make the transition - and - exposes your equipment to fumbling and contamination opportunities)...

User Review

  • Excerpt: For the price alone here in germany (sold @dslr-forum.de for 130 EUR, body only) or for 239 EUR new via Saturn Onlineshop @ebay with 18-55mm/3.5-5.6 OSS Kitlens, you really can't go wrong, nothing beats that price atm from canikon. The bad, or worst: - very cheap EVF, flickering, very low resolution. - plastic eyecup, not rubber like onto a "real DSLR".

Great camera for a great price

O-Dog, Crutchfield

  • Summary: When I first started looking for a digital SLR I was attracted to some other well known name camera. I got the Sony because of the price. I'm extermely happy with the size performance and the multitude of features. I mostly use it for action shoots; sporting events and food photography. The continuous shoot feature is excellent, it makes me feel like a true professional.
  • Pros: Tons of features, great for action shoots. Great bang for your buck!
  • Cons: I bit small for me, probably because I have big hands.
