Summary: This is a great camera. My daughter saved up her money and purchased this camera. It is very nice, takes great pictures and well worth the money spent. You can do a lot with this camera. Very good product.
Summary: Bought this in the Spring of 2011 not long after it came out (had looked at Sony NEX5 and did not like it). I was a Canon guy for years and a prior Sony buy (DSCH1) convinced me to stay with Sony. The A33 took some getting used to (a bit complicated) but then again, I am one of those folks who hates reading instruction books. It is a flat out amazing camera. The standard 18-55mm lens creates very sharp images even very close-up. The 55-200mm lens is also very sharp.
Summary: This is a very fine instrument. It is fast. Easy to hold with special grip. All the elements that go together in adjustments for a high quality picture are placed on the camera in easy places. The pictures are perfect. The quality of the camera body Is fantastic because it is solid. You would be very happy with its built and high tech translucent mirror. Thank you.
Summary: Love, love, love it!! Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah. It is old by todays standards, but still works great! I've had more issues w/after market lenses, that the camera!
It's the best camera for it's price...discontinued, that is!

Summary: I was reluctant at first to buy this camera when the sales rep said they stopped production on it. I paid $400.00 for mine. I will state that for the "discontinued" price, it's the best bargin "on the for real". The #1 reason I must say is the FIRMWARE update! Yes the firmware update turns this prototype camera into a great bargin camera. I can get up to 17 megapixel (RAW) photos just from the autofocus/ auto+ feature.
Summary: This product is great and the name speaks for its self. This Sony Digital Camera is awesome in all the function it can perform with such great results. The fit is great while its not too bulky. This product is a great choice.
Summary: I upgraded to this from my Sony a100, and am not disappointed. Live view, video capability, much better performance at higher ISO. Plus, all of my old lenses (including old minolta) work perfectly with this camera.
Summary: After a LOT of research I finally got up enough guts to buy this camera (just the body). My Minolta lens work great with it. Love everything about it. Still getting used to all the features. But it's exactly what I wanted.
