Stay away from Sony DSLRs: bad quality, warranty repair service horribly slow. Service center seems to have damaged camera.

  • Summary: UPDATE: I got the camera back from warranty repair. Yes they did repair the steadyshot function, but after the repair the viewfinder display is not working. I am afraid the Sony service center damaged the camera.

Excellent Product - But Be carefull wich lens you choose

Conor -, Amazon
3 January 2011
  • Summary: This is an excellent product and is very capable, I have been using the Sony Alpha range for years now I with some great results. However be careful which package you choose, I would suggest taking the standard Sony Lenz Package PLUS the Sony 55 -200 lens option.

A good camera for anyone with Minolta lenses

Sony a550 review

Karma, Amazon
30 November 2010
  • Summary: As a first, the Sony Alpha a550 is a great starter camera. Its not bulky, and is also light. Which makes the camera so easy to carry around. 7 frames per second provide an extremely fast camera.
