Rated 5 out of 5 by BombPin Best Buy
Worth more than I paid for, I Love this camera, all I have been doing since I bought it yesterday is taking pictures. When taking pictures with such clarity why not. Been capturing a lot of cute moments with my kid. Amazing video and picture quality and done quick too. Click of a button gives you two photo's the one you click and a pic also removing some things in background and focusing on the main stuff. Battery lasts a while and charges quickly. I am so confident in this camera I will not need studio pictures come Christmas.

I received this camera as a gift after much researching knowing this was the camera I wanted. The camera is flawless in performance, from the feel of it in your hands to the location of the buttons and other parts of the body. The image quality is amazing! I came from a Canon Powershow S3 with 6 MP and honestly didn't know a picture could look this good.
If you are looking to get into the DSLR game this a a great entry level camera. Once you put the camera into Manual (M) mode the camera really comes to life. Choosing focal points and various settings start to become more fluent and pictures come out better and better.
Attached is my first successful night shot which I honestly cannot believe came out as well as it did. This camera is a must buy!

by CirkutBob Sweep Panoramas with Sony α58
I bought this camera primarily to use with the Sweep Panorama mode. The attached photo, which used the 18mm focal length, had sufficient resolution to print as a 8" X 48" panorama. This is quite remarkable for a camera in the price range of the α58. The maximum sweep angle is dependent on the focal length of the lens used. Sony recommends using the wider angle focal lengths and subject distances that are not too close to the camera. Using these guidelines, good quality results can be obtained with only a little practice.

by ImagesPhotography Balance and Useability
Switching from Canon to Sony equipment. Using this camera in the studio and as a backup for Landscapes. Balanced and works with a variety of Tamron lenses so versatility is a key here. Crisp, clear and full color range in all the pic. Little need for post production work on the pics.

Rated 3 out of 5 by azkhan no more a-mount camera
camera is good, but probably the last alpha i have. I had three A-mount lenses and now, the choice for the camera body for this price range is limited to only one. yeah, i know there is adopter but which means a extra cost and it is so unnecessary. Although I had great time with alpha, the last camera i had went to lot of places with me including Tibet, Hawaii, Fiji and is reliable. I drop it from second floor and watch it rolls to downstairs but still working. It last longer than two water proved W serious I had. As matter of fact, I been using same camera body for last 10 years. Since Sony seems like going to have E-mount phase out the A-mount, I dont want to spent any more money to buy the same type of camera lenses You know, never heard Canon or Nikon or Leica change the size of their mount. I should listen to my friends so I dont have to through more than 3 grands in the water. I know adopter is cheap but who knows if sony will get a newer mount to replace the E?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rockness Best entry level DSLR out there
I'm not sure why this camera isn't the best selling entry level DSLR. This camera has excellent image quality. The unfortunate thing is the kit lens doesn't do it justice like most. I bought the Sony 16-50mm lens that comes with the A77 camera and the difference is outstanding. I had the chance recently to compare this camera to two Canons. The T3 and the T4i. The Sony was faster, easier to use, and took better pictures, especially in low light. Compare image quality and ease of use. See for yourself. Check reviews online that compare actual images between this and other cameras in it's class. Websites like Image Resourse is well respected.
