Sony Alpha 58 (SLT-A58K)

PC Magazine
20 August 2013
  • Conclusion: The Sony Alpha 58 (SLT-A58K) offers an upgraded OLED EVF and kit lens, but it isn't the top D-SLR in Sony's lineup.
  • Pros: OLED EVF. Full-resolution 5fps burst shooting. Cropped JPG shooting at 7.3fps. Good performance at high ISO settings. Hinged rear display. Good control layout.
  • Cons: EVF not as sharp as other Sony models. Rear LCD could be larger and sharper. Only one control dial. Disappointing kit lens.
