Excerpt: I bought and heavily use an HX100V super zoom, and that positive experience led me to buy an SLT-A35 kit. I have been most intrigued by the auto HDR feature set, including the multi-frame noise reduction where a short fast series of images are "stacked" such as is done in astrophotography. Just for fun, I walked out in the driveway and shot Orion's Belt in the overhead night sky using the 75-300 kit lens.
Pros: Fast, responsive, good LCD quality, lightweight, good build quality, lets you manually adjust (like most SLR's)
Cons: Low battery life, subpar kit lens capabilities (18-55 is not that good), loses focus during boost shooting, no manual settings during video recording. Video recording length is short due to heating issue.
Summary: I was really excited about this camera, ready to throw my wallet about, until the lack of a pivoting screen appeared. My Canon G12 screen gets used almost every time I switch the camera on, it's amazingly useful. So what's stopping me getting an existing Pivoting DSLR? They are ridiculously huge and the zoom range is so short you have to lug another lens, so you end up like a stupid Christmas tree in July. The small size of this Sony was ALMOST the solution.
"A great entry level camera with a few minor limitations"

Summary: As a relative newcomer to DSLR photography, I have been impressed with the performance, features and usability of the A35. My last SLR was a Canon back in the late eighties and since then I have used compacts. All the usual features exist as you would expect on a modern camera and so far the photographs I have taken with this camera rival any that I have seen from any of my friends using Nikon and Canon cameras.
Pros: Panoramic function, effects, HD video quality
Cons: switching between video and still review modes, internal viewfinder low resolution
Summary: Die Kamera macht sehr gute Bilder. Die Videoqualität lässt etwas zu wünschen übrig. Schlaufe etwas schwer dran zu machen. Im Allgemein sehr gutes Preis leistungsverhältnis. Ich habe das hama Reinigungsset dazu bestellt. Sehr leicht zu reinigen. Der Blitz in einem geschlossenem Raum ist sehr unnatürlich. Displayqualität mittelmäßig. Man denkt am Display das die Qualität der Bilder schlecht sind, da das Display sehr stark rauscht bei schlechtem Licht. Aber so ist es nicht.
Pros: Sehr gute Bildqualität, Bildstabilisator, Sehr leicht zu reinigen
Cons: Keine Digitale Wasserwaage, Display ohne Schwenkfunktion
