This camera is of excellent value. I use two for professional work along with an array of Carl Zeiss, Sigma and Tamron lenses. Being compatible with various lenses was a great plus for me and saved a lot of money as I could use my existing lenses. I owned a Canon 350D a while ago and became increasingly annoyed with the less intuitive canon interface, I was looking for an alternative and came across this lovely DSLR and it competes with Nikon and Canon Canon 50D and D300 in every area minus the live view and video.
The camera provides excellent quiet focus and high iso low noise level rivals Nikon D300 that to the firm V4. DRO is a blessing and excellent when it comes to highlights. The camera comes with loads of features, including a moisture and dust-resistant body and Eye-Start AF, which detects your eye and begins autofocusing.
Having tried the Sony interface in the shop, I enjoyed the way it worked and decided to buy it for just under £700 and I've never looked back, it's a great camera.
