Graham, Norfolk Keen amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
IQ obtained with a good lens is good. It feels light in the hand and ergonomically is good. The 16Mp sensor does not show up flaws in lesser lenses as much as the 24 sensor does on the A77 and even more so on the A99. Not sure whether this is good or bad - depends on your point of view.
Bad points:
Do not like the viewfinder in this compared to the A77 or A99. Images often appear "dark" or have a "blue" feel to them. Obviously there is a difference in cost between these camera bodies. The body definitely does feel as solid as the A77 or A99 - again though cost implications here.

Dave, Warrington Keen amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Having been using a Sony A390 DSLR recently and read the reviews for the Sony A57, was not disappointed with it. Have found it to be a great SLT. Just afraid that I will now neglect the A390.....
