Sony SLT-A57 - an outstanding cam!

Pretty much I think what current owners already know - the a57 is an outstanding cam!

Two of the complaints mentioned are ones I have not noticed.

  • color tearing. Haven't seen it or noticed it.

  • jpg engine not as good as it could be. I did notice the awesome dynamic range. I'm happy with the jpg performance, but hey, if it can be better, I'm for it! The only time I find myself shooting RAW now is in very low light with tricky lighting, for more control over WB in post.

Hi gang,

As many of you have already noticed, we published out Sony A57 this evening local time at http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/sony-alpha-slt-a57 . Twenty pages to pore over and 45 images in the samples gallery. Thanks for being so patient. We weren't able to review this as early as we would have liked.
