Image quality only 3.5 if you use kit Lens. With Tamron 18-250 image quality is more then 4.5. Very good relation between cost and quality (only body). With CCD matrix is much better then A350 (less noise). Problems: - poor effects with kit lens - too low possition of flesh when open - keep individual settings only in P, A, S, M

Got this camera as a very good deal pricewize as a return at a local store. Very impressed overall. Was a Minolta Maxxum 9000 user so had some Minolta lenses lying around. They work great with the Sony Alpha. Also had an HVL-56 external flash which works perfectly with the Sony, even the wireless trigger. Have taken some very good shots with the camera and am extemely please with the results. I even took some nightshots at ISO 1600. With a bit of photoshop despeckle, came out perfect. Problems: ...

Well after using this camera for 1 year. I can certanly say that this a very good entry level dSLR. The construction of the camera is very good, and feel more solid than the competition Canon XS / XSi, not as rugged as E-520 or Nikon D60 but well built. Image quality is very nice if you know how to use this camera, because the meetering system is kinda tricky. It tends to underexpose to preserve highlight detail, thats why a lot of reviews says in high iso is noisy. But what i have found is ...

I have been testing this camera over the last two days and find it very easy to use, well functioned. I particularly like the live view implementation, long battery life, easy access to functions via most of the buttons on the camera. The kit lens seems to perform reasonably well as a starter lens. For the price this camera performs well. Problems: Could do with better high ISO but that is being addressed in the A500 and A550.

Nice camera body to handle - quickly able to take a range of photos using many of the features without using the handbook. The 18-70 3.5-5.6 lens supplied has a very useful range. The package included a wide angle and a telephoto convertor which expanded the capability of the kit. Have also added a Tamron 70-300 tele-macro lens which has yielded awesome results already. Additional "lessons" can be found on the Sony website: http://support.sony-europe.com/dime/tutorials/techniques/ Problems: T ...

55mm Kit lens is very impressive with a great range 18-70 LIVE VIEW is a great feature and the LCD tilts making low angles and over crowd shots possible, out doing competitor SLRs like XTi and D40. Nice not too entry level yet not expensive like a pro camera. Combined with battery grip and flash you'll find yourself with nearly endless possibilities. Again for the price, who can complain Problems: Low lighting shooting in auto setting isn't that great but if you know what you are doing as far ...

The qlty image is similar to budget dsrl in market. If you want a good result you must use good software. Af speed is similar to other brands in same price. Good battery and shotting mode. Problems: The body is very difficult to easy operate and viewfinder is similar a 4/3 budget camera plastic costruction, very little. Body is not balanced well if you use lens over the kit. Live view is darkness in more situation and impraticable. 16:9 format is praticable in L.V mode, in W.F is difficult. ...

A lot of people who complained about the noise are obviously non-Sony user or reviewers. I have seen a lot of Canon and Nikon users who wished they don't have such extensive lens collection so they could switch to Sony. Some complained the narrow range of Sony lenses. Have they considered looking at the wide range of Minolta lenses? Quite frankly, I own Sony, Canon and Nikon DSLR....and the Sony Live View is just to die for...So, for those thinking of getting a Sony.....get one...!!! Problems: ...
