Mervyn, Experienced amateur

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Fast, comfortable, excellent pictures
Bad points:
AEB restricted to +/- 0.7ev 3 stop. No user settings. No ability to control settings remotely. Will not record RAW in some settings which is fine but doesn't change to jpg automatically, you have to enter the menu then do the same to switch back.
AEB and remote is better on A58 so this camera, although a higher spec, is restricted.

Bill, Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Not had it long, getting used to the features, but I've got a long way to go, I think I made a good choice when upgrading from my Sony a390 DSLR.
Bad points:
You need to buy a book to get the best out of the camera, this is no different than most other DSLR cameras. I chose a65/a77 for Dummies, so far a good choice.
