Very nice camera

Al Fisher, Amazon
24 December 2012
  • Summary: The camera now a few years old and discontinued. Very impressed with the camera, but was not pleased at all with the kit lens that came with it. Color and exposure not correct. I bought a Tamron 24-50mm to replace the kit lens. Night and day difference. Highly recomend the camera but buy the Tamron lens. Nice thing about all the Sony dslr cameras is the stabilization is built into the cameras. They own the patent from Minolta (Sony cameras actually Minolta cameras).

  • Excerpt: Good for pratically all scenes. Fast shot and excelent for low lights. Flash left to be desired a little bit. Problems: To switch from movie to pictures is a little bit confused and it's not too fast.

  • Excerpt: Here's what I wanted in a good new digital camera along with a load of information that I wish I could have found all in one place when I was doing my research. I know my way around cameras, but I am not a professional photographer and I am not receiving compensation for this review! I wanted a large sensor for superior photo quality (and freedom to crop) and I wanted the option of full manual control.

  • Excerpt: This camera is very good for general photography, i think the best A class so far, even better than the first SLT generation A33/55. As you can see my latest photos from greek islands in my big photo album at : http://community.webshots.com/user/btbill the image quality is very good combined with a good len CZ16-80. I use also Olympus E-5 which is better than Sony but costs double money!

Excellent camera, just 1 feature missing

  • Summary: I can tell a lot of wonderful things about this camera (image quality, quick autofocus even in live view, low-light performance, in-body stabilization etc) and have only 1 complain: it's the only DSLR that I know in this price range that does not automatically correct lens geometrical distortion, I can't really understand why.

  • Excerpt: I agree with those who came before me (above) This camera is the best I've ever owned....and I've owned more than most. On top of their comments: 1. REMEMBER: this camera throws IS at any lens that it mounts - even the $50 E-Bay A mounts that are sharper than Sh*t...made by Minolta back in the 80's and 90's in Osaka JAPAN. 2. Don't be a bigot. Canon and Nikon are great but....you're not a Canon and Nikon lens freak or you would NOT be reading this! 3.
