Summary: The camera takes really nice pictures and as an added bonus I can use my older Minolta lenses as with most Alpha models. This model still has the metal lens mount while some of the newer and cheaper models have a plastic mount.

Summary: Great camera, the reviewers were right. Most difficult thing is to keep it in my office, both my son and my daughter keep walking off with it! I added a good 50mm lens and this camera takes beautiful shots.
Summary: I love this camera! It takes gorgeous photos. Even in low light compared to my old Sony A330. It packs a ton of useful features in as well! I love the panoramic mode and have used it quite frequently! My first test using it was @ Jigokudani Snow Monkey Park in Japan.
Summary: used this for some freelance photo journalism. it worked great. not an excellent low light camera but took great video and made a good impression when the subject would hear those 10 shots go off per second. sounded really pro.
Summary: Perfect for a semi-pro or pro photographer, or even newcomer. Lighter than a DSLR, and much more vivid colors. The only downfalls would be the lack of accessories that can be purchased for it, and (as with more sony cameras) the avaliabilty of lenses.
