A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing by TomM
If you read the reviews of this camera around the internet, you'll find one large complaint that seems to smother all of the advantages of this camera - the finder and lcd displays are horrible.
I find that the 'feel' of using this camera is reminiscent of film photography, in that you don't really know how good your picture is until you import it into your computer.
Another option that makes this camera attractive, though, is the ability to shoot 'tethered' to a laptop, making the on-camera displays irrelevant.
All of the accessories are compatible with other Sony Alpha cameras, so investing in this camera isn't throwing your money away as some might suggest.
Don't ignore this little camera. It might just be the perfect way to start your migration away from a mirror DSLR to mirrorless cameras.
Great camera by mspaige
Better and fancier than I expected. I would recommend it.
Great camera by Timothy
Has lots of features and good quality photos for the price. We were flirting between a big-time purchase and another regular old digital camera and this one really fits the middle ground. Lots of features, comes with a good lens, and great to start on for playing with different photo options. But, not terribly expensive and also has a lot of
"auto" settings for more novice picture takers.
Great camera for my 18 yr old son by Mereloftus
This was a Christmas and birthday gift for my 18 year old son. He now never leaves without it. Highly recommended.

Quality camera at an affordable price. by Libby
I received this camera for my birthday. I wanted a digital camera that would replace the one I received in 1994. It was about time to upgrade to a camera that would be used for many outdoor shots, as I intend to travel more. Nature photography in particular...easy to use camera with affordable extras. I love it!
Great for the purpose by CCParker
Bought to document birth of my first born. Couldn't be happier with easy use, quality pics/vids, and price point. Highly recommended!
