Summary: In a tough sector, having a unique selling point is key, and that is what has made Sony's series of SLTs stand out from the crowd. But with the Alpha 58, its advantages have been diluted quite a bit.
The 20.1-million-pixel sensor sees it resolving greater levels of detail than its siblings, but the results are compromised at high ISO and are not as useable as images from rival models.
Excerpt: The vast majority of SLRs we see on the street bear Canon or Nikon logos. Sony clearly wants to change this, and by our reckoning it's going about it the right way. Digital SLR technology is mature and refined, and ultimately there's little to choose between similarly priced Canon and Nikon models. Sony, on the other hand, provides some genuine choice with cameras such as the new Sony SLT-A58. Its SLT cameras aren't technically SLRs.
Excerpt: Med tiltalende pris, høj opløsning og lynhurtig autofokus er Sony A58 et udmærket kamera til nybegynderen. Brugervenligheden er godt varetaget; den vipbare skærm er lille, men praktisk; og kameraet har klassens klart bedste søger. De nærmeste konkurrenter er Nikon D3200, D5200, Canon EOS 100D og Pentax K-30. Alle sammen er relativt kompakte spejlreflekser med nogenlunde tilsvarende specifikationer, men A58 er det billigste.
Pros: Rigtig god detaljegengivelse, Overskuelig betjening, Stor og skarp OLED-søger
