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.

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.
