Summary: This is a excellent camera and it takes great pictures. I recommend getting one of the after-market manuals for the model. It is a complex device with many features and capabilities. But it works great, even in the Auto modes.
A great camera if you don't need the weather sealing of the a77!

Summary: I did not need the extra weight, or fancy extras of the a77, so I got this one. Since it has the same image sensor, I knew I would get great photos. I can not say enough good things about this camera. A lot of people complain that the sensor is "noisy" but I don't see it unless I'm shooting at some crazy high ISO.
Summary: I bought this as a surprise gift for my husband because it was compatible with some lenses he already had that went to an old 35mm camera. He is a very good photographer, and he figured out all of the bells and whistles this camera offers quickly and easily. The pictures he has taken with it are portrait quality. I am not typically a good photographer, but the quality of the photos that I have taken is astounding as well! The 24.3MP's are great!
Summary: This is a really nice camera. I have been taking pictures for 45 plus years and use this camera to produce really great photography. It has a very rich feature set, take great detail pictures that are accurately color balanced. You have some really great options with this camera as it offers a wealth features to aid in doing almost any type of photography you want. To me the result is a great picture whether taken in raw or J-Peg.
Summary: Okay so I purchased this around February, I have to say this is the biggest step I have every taken from beginners to a higher end camera for photography and film making and I'm glad I made the perfect choice to upgrade from a beginners Dslr like the Nikon D3100 to this puppy the A65 and its beastliness!
