The A58 gets some negative press based on how it compares to the A57. Sony should have probably named it the A48 or something like that. However, this is a great camera in its own right. I owned the A57 and like the A58 better for the following reasons:
1. The OLED viewfinder is MUCH better than the viewfinder on the A57. I honestly did not think the difference would be a big deal. But, after using it, my opinion is different.
2. The JPEG image quality is the best I have seen on an Alpha camera to date. Sony finally tweaked the JPEG engine for better results.
3. The quiet shutter sound of the A58 is great. This is especially useful in a quiet setting.
I own this camera and an alpha 99 While the image quality is nothing like the a99, it does really good. I used this camera more for macro since the crop sensor gives a little more reach than the full frame. It's too bad the ISO doesn't go down to 50.
The build quality if OK and functional. I'm not concerned about lack of metal around the lens mount. It is light weight and lots of plastic but I'm not concerned about this.
Image quality is fairly good and noise if controlled ok up to 800 in my opinion. It doesn't compete on the level of a full frame but it still produced nice images as long as you know what you are doing. I never use auto mode so I cannot comment on the camera's "logic" used to determine the right exposure.
This bundle came with everything I wanted to set up the camera. This camera has been great for me so far. The kit came with all new parts and the spare items like batteries are great since I would have bought them anyway. The shipping kept up with other purchases I had on amazon prime but I do think I paid a few bucks for the faster shipping speed on my order.
"Great package deal on Sony DSLR" - By C. Desai (Houston, TX)
Great product, great price. I am happy with the package deal. Once I got the whole package I had everything I needed to get started. Just check the prices of all the products individually and you will know how good a deal this one is.
I took this camera on a trip to Lake Tahoe and the pictures turned out beautiful, I love this camera. It's my first DSLR so I can't compare it with other cameras but for a beginner like myself this was a great buy.
I'd like to start by saying I am not a professional photographer; photography is just a hobby for me. But this was my first purchase of A DSLR and I couldn't be happier. The pictures are crisp and clear, and so far the extra lenses, battery, and such have come in very handy. The performance of this camera has outdone anything I expected, and my friends have been very jealous! I am still learning how to use this camera, but it comes with a complete manual that has been really useful. I greatly recommend this package deal to anyone wanting a good DSLR. I know there are much fancier ones out there that would be a better choice if you are a professional, but this suits my needs well. And I will definitely look for this same seller when I decide to purchase more ... full review
Purchased this Lens Cap bundle to replace some older lens caps that had difficulty staying on when using a UV filter on the lens. These lens caps are high quality and stay securely on the lens even with a filter is attached, besting most original lens caps. That alone was worth the price, but the real surprise was the quality of the lens keepers that were included. They affix securely to the cap via an adhesive pad and actually have a nice strap to secure it to the lens -- a far cry from the lens cap plastic loop and piece of string usually provided by others as a "lens keeper". And if that were not enough of a value -- a lens cloth is also included!!
To say I am happy with the quality of the caps and the entire bundle, would be a ... full review
STK's Sony NP-FM500H BC-VM10 Battery Charger We purchased an Alpha Series camera package deal that came with an extra lens and other accessories, such as the battery charger. Over the Christmas holidays, we lost the battery charger somewhere. We looked for a replacement locally and online. Went to Best Buy and paid $50 for one the salesperson assured us was correct for the camera. Got it home and it was the incorrect size. Then went through a big hassle trying to return it to the store. Tried many other stores but no one had it in stock, only through their website. I was hesitant to order online and then if it wasn't right, have to deal with returns and trying to get a refund. All the sites, including Sony, were charging about $65 plus shipping for a charger. I found this seller on Amazon.com and I was unsure because ... full review
