Christopher, Bodmin Keen amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Very light weight and fits easily in your hand. Pictures per second rate ensure you actually get the picture you want. The ease of use and menu functions, make taking a professional picture very simple. I'm still trying out all the different modes.
Bad points:
Disappointed with the build quality especially the USB port cover which seems a little poor considering this is a Sony product.
A bag option would be nice.

Joan , Jupiter Keen amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The camera has SO many great features and options. It is nice that the different options in the menu have a short description of what that option provides without having to look it up in the manual. The 10 sots per second burst mode is excellent and really captures the action. I love the flip screen so you can view the shot from any angle. The steady-shot helps to keep pictures clear. The automatic setting allow you to take excellent picture from the beginning without having to become familiar with all the features so you get immediate results and then can learn all the other functions that will give you the ability to produce special affects and professional-quality photos.
Bad points:
Although you can take a couple hundred pictures on a single battery charge, the battery life is not so good, so having a backup battery is a must for long photo sessions. A memory stick was not included with the purchase of the camera, so you have to go out to get one before you can experiment with the camera. It isn't really clear which memory stick is best. I purchased a 32GB memory stick that just did not hold the images and when downloaded, the images were damaged. It is hard to tell which memory will work right. I do have an 8GB memory stick that seems to work great so far. I wanted a backup so that if I forget to put it back in the camera after downloading the pictures using an external card reader I will have another to use for further photos. I have forgotten the memory stick twice so far.

terry, Aldershot Professional photographer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Speed in sports mode excellent.
Folding LCD screen (no scratches)
Picture quality.
Amount of modes, even auto can be a help sometimes.
Shoots in RAW & JPEG at the same time.
Easy control use.
Size and it's an outstanding body, what I mean is that for it's size you think it's going to lack features not so, it's easily up there with any other Pro camera.

None that I can think of

David, Windermere Experienced amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:

It is lighter, more compact and more sophisticated than previous models which are all advantages.
Bad points:
I find the ON/OFF switsh awkward to operate easily - the type used on the Alpha 100 was more convenient.
The 'Playback' button is susceptible to being activated when not required by simply holding the camera on occasions.
