Love this camera...

  • Summary: I purchased this because I had Sony and Konica lenses. This is a nice camera. The quality is probably a bit less than the EOS, but comparable from what I have seen to the D90 or better.

It's an alright camera

  • Summary: Photo quality is exceptional, but the display is very low resolution and makes the pictures look worst than what they are. And for the price you are better off to get the Cannon T3i.

  • Summary: so far the camara has performed well. I am using it with the Minolta Maxxum lens. The night shots are good. I would have thought that the overall picture quality would have been a little better because it is an SRL camera. jb

  • Excerpt: Last week i sold my sony A350 and bought the A500. I'm very happy with the results. instead of the A350 who's pictures were noisy above iso 200 the pictures from the A500 are noise free and detailed all the way up till iso 1600. Using the tamron 17-50 lens gives exellent results.

Short review of the Sony DSLR500A

William Williamson Jr. "W**2", Amazon
23 March 2010
  • Summary: The photo quality is very good, the ease of use is excellent, the camera is bulky (but most DSLR's have to be), and the battery has a long long lifetime as long as you don't take many flash photos. However, the RAW format for the highest resolution photos is a bit of a pain.

Robust, easy to use mid-range SLR. Great value

  • Summary: Have now been using this camera for two years or so, and am very happy with it. Use it for a wide range of static snaps; everything from personal holidays to promotional pics for a charity, to action photos suitable for publication in professional magazines.
