Summary: I replaced a Sony A350 with this camera. I am very happy with the Sony A58 camera. I am more about taking photos than using the video that it has... I guess one day I will try that out, but for now, it's all about good photos.
Summary: This is my 2nd Sony Alpha & I love it! I upgraded from the A-55 to the A-58. The body is lightweight & the functions are easy to use. It takes great pictures & comes with lots of extras. You can't beat the quality you get for this price.
Excerpt: I bought this to replace an old A200 that I lost on a trip. I'm certainly no professional, and this camera has everything I need and then some. I like the speed, accuracy of focus, and the quality of images. It's obviously head and shoulders above my old A200.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Quiet
Excerpt: I will use this for both personal and maybe professionally. I took some pictures and had them printed. They turned out great. I like the many features. I have not tried them all yet, still learning about them. I also like that my Minolta lenses fit on this Sony Camera.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance
Summary: I ordered this camera for my trip to Germany this summer, and was able to test it out for my niece's birthday party. Not only did it perform well, it performed better than I anticipated. The pictures turned out very nicely, and a short video I took also turned out nicely.

Summary: all items delivered as advertised. Although will probably not utilized any of the smaller accessories as I have an extensible collection already that I own & used. Pictures are quality but my main interest with this camera, as opposed to my existing Sony DSLR, is the ability to shoot video.
