Pros:Simple, ability to utilize optical Minolta af, stabilzzatore image in the camera body, very light (too much), a good number of pixels, well-structured and intuitive menu.
Cons:Image noise already at 400 ISO, the dust can easily get to the sensor (!!), Build quality of the camera body.
Opinion:I bought the car a few years ago and I took about 80,000 photos. The machine is an excellent entry level with which you can start to experiment, learn and take off their first successes. After so many shots must be said that the design limits of the machine, in my opinion, are essentially two: incredibly I often find myself having to clean the sensor and the light meter, using the lens base 18-55 sottoespone me of at least one stop! ! So it would have to be recalibrated ... Of against the fact of having the stabilizer in the body of the machine, allows to use the endless park optical Minolta AF without hitting the moved. This is very handy when using the tele-zoom.rnIl image sensor allows you to make detailed pictures thanks to its well-14mp but when the light begins to run low and you have to raise the ISO problems begin .... In fact, since the 400 iso noise is clearly present in the image but from 800 noise becomes unbearable especially if the photo is made in color. I also appreciated the number of functions which possesses as various balancyou white, area etc. af ... only be called from the fn key, and the fact of having a single ring instead is a bit 'limited ... but oh well, and there is an entry level sta.rnIl value for money when buying it was still good compared to the more famous brands but in hindsight I would have chosen not just because of the quality of construction: nikon and canon are certainly built better, but do not allow the use of a large number of optical dated (keeping the AF and the stabilizer).

Pros:Price, in 2010 I bought 380 euro with 18:55, stabilized body, good image quality
Cons:lack of live view, does not make movies, already noisy at 800 ISO, slow burst
Opinion:My first camera, bought at a lower price of at least 100 euro compared to the entry level of the other brands. He practically taught the basics of photography, indeed has made me discover. The camera body is quite balanced in weight and size, without sin, and live view. Autofocus veloce.Le photos are detailed enough if realized in full light. After initial enthusiasm began to Starmie close, I saw that he had more limits than I thought, but not because it is not a good car, simply because it was the basis of the Alpha that lacked many features that I considered necessary over time. I'm still satisfied with what he gave me and that is the enthusiasm for photography and the basics. Today it is used less than 300 euro with the 18-55, I recommend it to those who want to start discovering the world of SLR. Rating 7
