Sony Alpha DSLR-A500 review

Its strengths: DRO (Dynamic Range Optimization) and HDR, Live view with fast auto focus, built-in image stabilization, tilted LCD screen.

I am very happy with this camera. I purchased it one month ago. The A500 has built-in DRO & HDR with adjustable levels, live view with quick auto focus (4 fps with live view), and tilted LCD. These features are very useful for me. The image quality is roughly the same from A500, A700 and Canon Xsi (this my another DSLR). DSLRs from other manufacturers are almost 10x slower when I tested them with Live View. Sony's second sensor makes the big difference.

Problems:

Found no problems so far.
