  • Summary: The few photos I took in low light were quite acceptable but controls and menus were more difficult (less straight forward and predictable) than on any camera in memory -- from SLR to DSLR, and everything in between. Puzzling and thoroughly offputting.

  • Summary: I love the camera but I ONLY received the camera. NONE of the other things promised to come with it; Sony 16GB Memory Card + Focus System Case + Accessory Kit. So the Camera is Incredible and I would give it a 5 star if I received everything promised.

Good Image Quality

  • Excerpt: The SLT-A58K does take very good photos (jpeg) and crops to 16x9 in the camera, a feature most SLR cameras lack. Video is crisp and clear and the sound is what you would expect. If you do not mind a plastic lens mount on the camera body, this might be the entry level camera for you.
  • Pros: Very good Jpeg Good video
  • Cons: This is a entry level model and it shows. The lens mount on the camera body is plastic and that was a deal beaker for me, after seeing that, the whole feel was just wrong. I sent it back for an upgrade to the SLT-A65V and although still plastic the build quality seems way better. BuyDig had no pr...

  • Summary: The camera is excellent, perfect, too much camera for the price, the only thing i didn't like about the package was the tripod and the memory card wallet, also, the Macro/Wide angle and the 2X telephoto converters have to use a mounting ring because they are for 58mm lenses, the mounting ring came...

Decent camera but mis-named by Sony

Adam Brown, Amazon

  • Summary: Those who are familiar with recent Sony dSLTs/dSLRs will be confused by this product. As a disclaimer, let me state that I do not own this camera. I do own an earlier model, and I did take a look at and handle this camera. One would expect the Sony A58 to be an update of the A57.
