Those are really beautiful! I like the dog with the sand on his nose. I almost laughed out loud! I have been thinking about Trading my A550 for the A57 or A65 and am glad to see such nice images come out of the A57..How is the viewfinder? I'm reading mixed reviews on it..SAL means Sony Alpha or A mount..NEX cameras have E mount.. Thanks for posting..Jimmymac

Thank you. To me it is very nice to use and fast. I did bought it with kit lens but was shot above photos with SAL18250 all in one zoom lens. I think SAL mean Sony Alpha Lens?

Thank you. Yes, he is a funny little dogy. Very lonely kept entertaining himself. He is belong to my neighbor. To me, A57 viewfinder is very good and I am very satisfy with its performance. I did tried both camera side by side just to taste their EVF. I chose A57. You should try both yourself if possible. Yeah..the SAL stand for Sony Alpha Lens.

Cheers..

sony lens part numbers

it's the part number for the lens - I would suspect it also stands for sony alpha lens but that's just a guess - trust me on the part number bit though

sal18250.   also hints to us that it is a 18-250 zoom lens

Which a quick search over on our friend Amazon tells  (http://www.amazon.com/Sony-SAL18250-18-250mm-3-5-6-3-Magnification/dp/B000VUFDPG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1350382021&sr=8-1&keywords=sal18250)

Sony SAL18250 Alpha DT 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3

Alpha (mount) DT (only works on crop/aps-c sized sensors) 18-250mm zoom (27-375mm equivalent zoom to a full frame lens)

edit - Oh - everyone already answered this stuff in the earlier notes, soz and yes - I liked the sandy dog too!

Nice indeed, I used to have that lens a long time ago, and it brook, now I wonder if the A57 does automatic correction with this lens, I would buy it again if so, or I could go for the Tamron 18-270, what do you think ? thanks.

Thank you. Yes. A57 does automatic correction for this lens. Very nice if shoot jpeg. This was one of the reasons I chose it over the equally good tamron. I can clearly see the corrective action once I pressed preview button. AF is fast too on the A57.

Cheers.
