Good: Easy to use and great photographs
Comment: I purchaed my camera "new" on ebay and it developed a fault, soon after, when the display malfunctioned. The ebay seller was a real "pain" and would not say where it came from originally and I had a lot of trouble getting Sony to repair it free. Luckily the camera model had only been out for a few months, so they had to accept that it was less than a year old. Would certainly advise people to pay a bit more and buy from a reputable source!
Since the repair the camera has worked fine and given me some great results. Particularly like the battery life and the fact that Sony did not mess around adding movie functions and the like.
This camera was to replace a Sony A200, so I already had a good idea what most of the controls did.
I have just purchased an A77, so guess I am a Sony "fan".
Good: It is a "stills camera". It does what it says on the spec. sheet.
Bad: Build quality not up to that of my previous KonicaMinolta 5D DSLR.
Comment: In many reviews there are comments regarding the video options on DSLR cameras. If I want to make movies I will purchase a camcorder.
One other small point, the menu system is not really user friendly. There are many better ones out there on other brands, in many cases, cheaper cameras.
