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

What reports of focus Errors? Do you have a link to those errrors?

Maybe a member or two here had that issue but I googled it hard and couldn't find anything. The focusing accuracy should be no better or worst than any other SLT.

This camera (A58) is a solid piece of equipment with a decent LCD, much better EVF and a improved sensor. If you are in the market for a good camera with a host of features and solid IQ, this should be it.

I have sold all my Sony Minolta gear but am seriously considering the A58 with the Tammy 17-50mm.

There are much more reports on focus errors with A58 than for the previous generation of A-mount cameras.

Looks like we are back to the days of A100/A200/A230/A300/A330/A350. In the later cameras the focus became better, but now screwed-up again.

Which is unacceptable of course.
