Excerpt: This is my second sony alpha dslr camera. My first being the sony a55 which unfortunately I dropped in water. This a58 is so easy to use and the quality of shots is amazing. I like capturing panoramic shots which are fantastic on this camera. All round great camera for beginners or semi pro users.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Quiet, Tilt /Swivel LCD
A great camera for the price, especially when paired with inexpensive Minolta lenses.

Summary: First of all I was very satisfied with the buying process for my "gray market" camera without the kit lens. Good communication, fast shipping and the camera came in the original US packaging with only the lens missing. I was able to register the camera and warranty with sony. No worries there.
