Summary: Let me first start off by saying I own a lot of glass. I also have had a fair share of cameras including Sony's latest higher end SLT cameras. I also shoot multiple systems including film. Mirrorless, full frame- all of it. This camera stacks up very well.
Summary: If you have never shot it, you won't understand how you can come to depend on the incredible shots you can take with this camera. You'll spend twice as much or more to get the same image quality with Canon or Nikon.
Summary: Very happy with this camera. Started out with Minolta years ago and was happy Sony bought out the company so I could continue to use items I already had. I just had too much invested to switch brands.
Better than I could have imagined! Great value for the money.

Summary: I bought this for a friend who wanted this camera for some time. I hear DAILY what a awesome camera it is! The pictures in the hands of an artist are simply breath taking. There is NOTHING to dislike about it!
