Some customer reviews of Sony Alpha DSLR-A900 (Body Only)

Most helpful reviews

David, Kelso Professional photographer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Optical viewfinder and extremely robust ergonomic body design, exceptional colour discrimination and dynamic range.
Bad points:
Has been discontinued. This is my second A900, I sold one to buy an A99, but three months later realised that the A99 does not do the same job in any way (I have kept the A99, it is good for other non-professional work). I therefore had to look for a good ex-demo A900 to have a functional working outfit once again.

David, London Professional photographer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Intuitive control layout, solid build, my 2nd 900 and I would buy a third in a heartbeat.
Bad points:
Need's faster AF, I use primarily for motorsports and find the focusing lacking in speed compared to the opposition, more FF lenses needed to get anywhere near C*N*N

Andrew, Chletenham Experienced amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
impressive detail with full frame sensor.
many useful features and customizable
Bad points:
I had some trouble getting the colour settings to produce a natural look when outdoors in bright sunlight and shade.
The contrast between sun and shade was harsh and had to be adjusted, but that maybe because i am not yet fully familiar with the controls.
