A57 Liked It So Much...
Sep 8, 2012

Got one arriving tomorrow.

Again.

I don't know why that should be shocking, but I've a feeling that a couple of readers here might almost fall out of their chairs reading that.

I'm all about a well balanced camera, and feel the A57 is a well balanced camera for the price. Like I've said, I enjoy using evf and ovf both and feel the A57 is a step up in many respects over the A580 (there are areas of the A580 however that still trump the A57 slightly).

Bottom line it was just a fun and capable camera to review. I kept picking it up and shooting with it even when I should have been doing other things (like tending to my daughter or wife etc).

That kind of fun means only one thing- I need to have one around.

So for anyone who thinks I'm totally against SLT- I hope that should be proof to the contrary. Although my T3i performs just as well in the noise category, having the extra stop of DR and faster performance, better grip, bigger finder, is going to give that camera some strain. The one I use the most wins a spot on my shelf for a while.

Have a feeling its going to be the A57.
