Happy with purchase,vendor and the whole E-Bay experience
6 January 2013
Summary: excellent value overall. purchased Sony because of compatibility with Minolta lenses. After talking with a friend he bought the A500...that will be my next because of additional features. Seller was excellent and exceeded all expectations. this is a great 1st serious DSLR.
Summary: I bought this camera body used off another site. My initial motivation to picking a Sony Alpha was the compatibility with Minolta lenses, I have a Minolta Maxxum 7xi with a full complement of lenses and I hoped I would be able to use at least a few them.
Summary: Got the a230 as a backup body for my a65, and as a starer DSLR for my son. Excellent feature set and handling. Lightweight and easy to navigate menus make it a breeze to use. Would have loved to have live view. Works great with my collection of Sony, Minolta & Tamron A-mount lenses.
Summary: Had no previous experience with the Sony Alpha system of photography and with the possibility of converting Leica R lenses to use with Sony Alpha MOunt I had just one more reason to check it out . It turns out that the system is very competitive with all on its own .
Summary: This review is based purely on results. A friend in Brazail sent me a few photos, as email attachments, taken with his camera. They are, in a word, perfect. Very clean, true-looking colors, and true-to-life images (beach and surfing) in high-contrast and difficult tropical light situations, both...
Summary: I have just received this camera today from Sony and I have taken about 250 photographs to test it. I am coming from a fuji S602 bridge camera that has done a great service for many years and I wanted to upgrade to a DSLR.
Summary: I am looking to buy a new camera, my daugther dropped our nice Kodak. Growing up we always had a SONY and loved it. My dad still has his and it takes amazing pictures. While I did not locate this camera on my own, was brought to it via another site, I am glad to have found it.
Summary: I recieved this camera with everything including the box, manual, lens, lens cap and accessories. The battery even came half charged, not drained, so I wouldn't have to spend hours charging it. I could use it right away.
