Summary: I bought this camera mainly so I could have something to shoot with while my main camera (at the moment, a Canon PowerShot SX40HS) was being loaned to my mother for a cruise to Alaska. My first DSLR had been a Canon EOS 10D, and ever since selling it I have wanted another DSLR.
Summary: I really like the camera. It is a good starter camera for the introduction to the SLR type cameras. Deal would have been a little better if it came with the strap. Having the battery included was a plus.
Summary: Nice camera package and functionality. I purchased this to use at work because of the price and the additional 75-300mm lense. Upon my employer finding out, they purchased me a Canon D50. This is a nice camera. I now use it for personal use and it is more than capable of doing the job.

Summary: I was definitely skeptical about buying a SONY SLR. Because as many know CANON AND NIKON are the top two out of any. But when I went to play with all the cameras, the Sony's quality was better than some of the canons and Nikons that were at the store. The lens with the 18-70mm is what sold me.
