PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The Sony Alpha DSLR-A580 is the only digital SLR that can deliver beautiful images and blazing fast autofocus whether you're framing your shots with the optical viewfinder, or with the LCD in Live View mode. Video-capture options are a bit limited, though.

Sony Alpha 580 review

Amateur Photographer
3 April 2014
  • Summary: It is easy to see why the Alpha 580 slipped under the radar while the Alpha 55 grabbed most of the attention. While in reality the key functions are all much alike, the Alpha 55 edges the Alpha 580 on more counts.

Sony Alpha DSLR-A580L review

23 February 2011
  • Excerpt: Sony’s recent A33 and A55 cameras are packed with innovative features, not least of which being their translucent mirrors and electronic viewfinders. As such, they’re not technically SLR cameras, even though they’re designed to compete in that arena.

  • Excerpt: Knapperne er placeret fornuftigt på højre side af kameraet og gør betjening med én hånd nem og ubesværet. 7,0 billeder i sekundet sikrer muligheden for at fange hurtige motiver som fugle og sport. Søgeren er lille og mørk i forhold til testens andre kameraer.
