Re: Why is the SLT-A58 so cheap, any obvious reasons?

It got panned because it was a slight downgrade to the A57 in some ways. The screen size, resolution, articulation is worse. It shoots slower(A still fast 5fps), and it doesnt shoot 3d or 1080p@60.

The A58 is an awesome camera for the price. Its head and shoulders above the A37, and better in some ways than the a57. It has that 20MP sensor and a really nice OLED viewfinder.

IMO, get the A58 and be happy. Its a great camera. 5FPS and 1080P@30 is still very good.
