Excellent value for money
, September 24, 2012
Very pleased so far 1 month after receiving the camera.
Image quality is very high and build quality is solid so it should last.
+ Image quality. Even with the kit 18-55mm images are pretty good, even excellent for an entry level DSLR.
+ Speed - can easily take 6+ FPS, very useful for catching kids jump off swings...
+ A-mount - compatible with older Minolta/Maxxum film SLRs, many used lenses and accessories for great prices to be found online
- Rear LCD is quite poor; you'll be using the viewfinder for any real work
- Autofocus made disappointing decisions even when it says it detected faces. Having to use manual focus more than I planned
