Most helpful reviews

Desmond, Bordon Experienced amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent images. Lightweight. Easy to change lenses. Easy to set up for creative shots. Lots of goodies such as video rapid shoot and the latest idea of a quieter shutter. LCD swivel is excellent particularly for low down shots. Eye viewer is clear and there is enough info shown to be able to compose a scene.
Bad points:
Lenses move on focussing which is annoying when using ND or polariser filters. Would like to see some internal focussing lenses particularly on the mid range product where things begin to get serious.
Battery does not last as long as its competitors. You need to carry at least one extra battery if you are going to take loads of pictures.

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
For a right-handed person all the important buttons and dials are able to be used just about one-handed........Brill!
Bad points:
Expensive and so are the accessories that you may need if you are jumping brands to the Sony family. There could be some sort of incentive to allow this to be a little less painful financially?

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
easy to use..
Bad points:
Unfortunately I purchased a single lens from 18-250.
maybe this was not a wise decision. diffucult to manage the lens.cumbersome. not sure if it gives advantage over two lenses.
Makes it difficult to focus on very close objects.
