Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very easy to use, light and compact for "SLR like" camera. Lots of effects and special features built in camera, so, if you`re not familiar with photo editing software on the PC, it might be very useful. Actually, results from these effects are pretty impressive and the only downside is that they are jpeg file format only.

Like any other Sony A mount camera, it supports all old Minolta lenses 1985 and later, with auto focus and image stabilization. There is some nice and very cheap lenses on the market, which are still capable of excellent results.

Bad points:
Translucent mirror technology has some light loss, so you need higher ISO to compensate.

SLT plastic filter (which looks like mirror, but it's not), is very easy to damage, just one light finger touch can damage it badly and it's very expensive to get new one (1/3 of cameras price).

Using camera in studio lighting conditions, you have to look into black picture, all shot is like suprise :)

A35 lacks tilt screen- it`s fixed, it would be very useful, if it was like on A33 or on later A37.

Another construction fail- USB and HDMI port cap is absolutely stupidly built, I have no idea how they tested it, but you can`t normally plug in cables, it`s very hard and looks like after few times cap will be gone from rubber "strap", I`m not using these ports.

Extremely poor battery life, 350-400 pictures max, at least one spare battery is must.
