Summary: I had the twin lens pack of this camera & was looking forward to giving it a real trial compared with the Canon DSLR's I have always owned. Out of the box the first obvious difference is the size & weight.....it is both smaller & lighter than any of my SLR cameras, but while the build quality is good it does have a slightly "plastic feel".
Summary: I am very happy with this camera so far. I just wish there were some better flash options available. I bought this because I already had a Minolta Maxuum film camera and lenses. My Quantaray/Maxxum a-mount lenses work flawlessly with this camera.
Summary: I am a owner or a Alpha A100, so when new travel plans were being made I objected to taking both a super-zoom camera and the DSLR for scenery shots. The compromise was to get the A37 with the 18-135 zoom. The video looks good compared to my Panasonic FZ35 video, plus there is no tendency to blow highlights in bright sun like with a smaller sensor. The 18-135 zoom performs great with video and can barely be heard in playback.
Summary: It is a very good camera, but it doesn't have many of great accessories that are Available for other models of slr cameras, like a vertical grip. I suppose those are reserve for the top level cameras, any way, if yours is the accessories better check all this before. The camera is very, very good! The pics are just excellent. It is really a great entry level camera.
Summary: Camera came with visible dust on a sensor, Amazon offered exchange, discount, or paying for cleaning the sensor. The latter helped. This is my first semi-transparent mirror camera, it takes a while to get used to live without a real image in the viewfinder. Compared to my second camera, Sigma SD 14, the colors are visually sub-par, the high ISO noise is a bit better, nice movie mode.
Summary: You cannot get a batter camera for this price. You get more features than the Canon and Nikon competitors. I searched at least 30 cameras and this one I got for my fiance for a Christmas present and I tell you what it was a great decision. She loves it and it has so many great features that the others did not have.
Summary: I owned the Sony A200, then the Sony A700. So i wanted to get the A37, which is one ont the new line of Sony DSLR cameras. I chose the A37, over the A57 or A65 because it claimed to have the SAME sensor and the SAME image processor. At first i love its great image quality, no noise in low light. However the shutter botton felt so flimsy. I didn't like its shutter lag. [...
Summary: Camera has all I want as a amateur trying to take better photo's and occansionally capture a digital movie. The view finder and back display are graining but then again this didn't cost anywhere near the price of a pro comera would
5 Stars***** to Sony products...not to bundled accessories

Summary: Sony A37K is fantastic!!! Great picture and video quality!!! Everyone was recomending me to go for Canon or Nikon as they are leader in in DSLR. But I have decided to go for Sony A37 after doing my some research.. Now My friend has Canon Robel. He says, Sony A37K is far far better than his Canon camera. with respect to feature, use, photo and video quality. Now I am proud to be owner of this camera.
