5.0 out of 5 stars Buyers will not be disappointed
By C Homrich Jr. on October 6, 2016
Absolutely love this camera. In my opinion it is as close to a perfect marriage as you can get between the Sony A65 and the Sony A77. The one and only thing I do wish they would have done was give it the weather sealing of the Sony A77, but there are inexpensive options out there to take care of that issue.

I had been a Minolta user for many years and I still have most of my lenses for that system. That in itself was the largest reason for my purchase. Prior to buying this camera body I was using a Sony A6000 with the La-Ea4 adapter for all of my lenses. And that did work well without a doubt, but I did not like being restricted to just 15 focusing points. The Sony A68 has 100 less focusing points than the Sony A6000, but none of the 179 focus points of the A6000 were of any use since I had to use the La-Ea4 adapter so I could continue to use the screw driven lenses that I have had for so many years.

The Sony A68 has 79 autofocus points natively and all are very much usable even with the 30+ year old Minolta Maxxum lenses. The focus motor in the camera body is quick and accurate and rarely misses a shot. The in body image stabilization system is a very welcomed option when using non stabilized lenses allowing for slower shutter speeds when shooting hand held. I don't mind using a tripod when I can, but there are just some places where it's not an option. The ISO performance of the Sony A68 is on par with most other APS-C camera models and produces very usable images up to ISO 6400.

The menu system is much nicer to navigate through than that of some of the other Sony camera models such as the Sony A6000. The menu in the Sony A68 is pretty streamlined for the most part and getting to the settings you wish to adjust is quick and easy. The top display that shows your current settings does have a slight slowness to respond to your changes as does the switching from live view to using the EVF. Those two issues could of been better handled by Sony with all of their advances as it stands currently. But it's not a crippling issue, just know there is a slight delay when changing from one to the other.

The Sony A68, in my opinion, fits comfortably in the hand and the weight of the body does seem to help balance the weight of my Tamron 150-600mm lens nicely as well. There seems to be some confusion across several listings on the internet (and on Amazon itself) about wifi on this model. There is no built in WiFi in the Sony A68. And personally, I'm thankful for that as it does drain the camera battery quicker with WiFi (one of the major complaints about several other Sony camera models). If you want WiFi access for the Sony A68, look into an EyeFi card, but be warned, those cards typically lose read/write performance. The Sony A68 has a surprisingly nice battery life and it has not drained my battery even while sitting in the camera bag for over a week. I put it away with a 100% charge, and when I took it out today, it still had a 100% charge. I have no complaints about the battery life at all.

On the one side of the body you have an access door that covers the memory card slot so you can replace the card with ease and without having to open the battery compartment door. That was one of my biggest complaints about the Sony A6000, there were days I had issues removing and/or inserting the memory card on the Sony A6000. Definitely a headache I am glad to no longer deal with.

On the opposite side there are two rubber covers that protect the Mini HDMI, USB Multi port, Mic input and DC power source input. All of which are easy to access and the covers fit snugly to keep dust, dirt and water out of the contacts. From what I am seeing, there's no decent way for Sony to produce a battery grip for the Sony A68, but they could always surprise me and come up with something that works. But since there are no camera control contacts in the battery compartment, it will most likely involve an external cord that attaches to the body via the USB Multi port on the side (just as they did for the Sony A6000).

I'm adding a couple photos I had taken with the Sony A68 and a couple of my Minolta lenses just as examples of what I have been able to do with this new camera body in combination with the older legacy lenses. I'm not a professional photographer, just a long term photography enthusiast.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST CAMERA FOR YOUR BUCK!
By Ashley Herbst on July 23, 2019
I just upgraded from the Sony A35, and WOW! I am impressed. I did a ton of research on which camera I should go with as my next “upgrade”. And I can honestly say I am very happy with my decision. This camera sits at 24 megapixels, which is VERY high, considering the price of the camera. I wanted to stick with the “A” series from Sony because I have a HUGE collection of Minolta lenses. The lenses all work perfectly with the Sony A68, which was a very important aspect I was looking for in buying a new camera. The camera body is definitely bigger than my A35, which took some getting used to, but honestly I love the way the camera grips in my hand; It feels more “expensive”. I love the tilting screen; but the ONE draw back with this camera, is the screen size. My Sony A35 screen was bigger... but it is something I can look past because of the price. I would rather have a WAY higher megapixel (upgrading from 16 mp to 24 mp) then a “bigger screen”, because let me tell you, when I pull up an image I took on the Sony A68 on my computer, it is worth it! The pictures are so crisp! If you are debating on buying this camera, I would pull the trigger and do it! You won’t be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars I am so glad I bought the Sony A68
By Joe Machuta on February 16, 2017
I am so glad I bought the Sony A68. It is a great camera for the price. The images are superb, crisp and sharp, and the steady shot is amazing. You can shoot as low as 1/30 sec and get sharp images. Its low light performance is great. Anyone purchasing this camera will be glad they did!
