Cons:Video a little underlie, only enough display, plastic nozzle, Mount attack.
Opinion:It's the machine I started with, replaced by a6000. Of this machine I regret essentially the erognomy and the grip, firm and solid, of another level compared to that of the small a6000. However compared to this, the A58 has the poor video compartment (which in 30fps with at quite slow) usually Sony always does a good job from this point of view. Always great instead the quality of image and the RAW you can work really well. The electronic viewfinder is the plus that the diatingue from the classic reflex, or you love it or you hate it. Plastic nozzle never gave me problems, however it is more of a psychological limit to have it. The real problem that has led me to replace it with the a6000 is the unfortunate destiny that is having the attack on Mount, which gives little confidence to invest in quality lenses for this body.
Pros:Value for money, has a lot of features, electronic viewfinder, focus peacking, body stabilized machine, shock resistant, good battery life.
Cons:Since it is an entry level you can hardly use it in a light environment if you do not match an F 1.8 lens, much less you can shoot in the evening, battery life long exposures.
Opinion:His only problem is not to be called canon... is a great machine for the price that you find probably higher than the competitors entry level canon/Nikon. I used it sporadically for a year and a half just automatically and pulled out some nice photos. After taking a course in photography has become the normal extension of my arm and I began to appreciate its versatility and the excellent bill (I fell from the tripod and did not make a scratch while the lens supplied 18-55 has reported a simple Dent but continues to work to perfection). I love the EVF, you have all the information you need without looking in the live view and you have a fairly truthful preview of the final result of the shot. To photograph indoors you need a bright lens. To my surprise it snaps up to 1600 ISO without major problems and although I hardly push it to 3200 ISO If you expose well the files are not bad at all. Over the 3200 iso pixels seem crazy and you have a real explosion of the same. I really appreciate the fact that it has the focus peacking also usable by viewfinder, as they often use old vintage lenses without autofocus; For the same reason it is also very useful the stabilizer directly on the machine body. The battery really lasts as long as you make lengthy exposures in this case it runs out pretty quickly, but I think it's a bit of a problem for all the entrylevels. I highly recommend the purchase unless not have the intention to go after a full frame, unfortunately Sony only makes a model of SLR FF and costs a lot but if you do not have money problems I would definitely recommend Sony in some ways is a step Forward to the others.
Pros:Intuitive, it has everything in its low price
Cons:In closed environments the photos are very noisy, slow to save the image even with the latest sd
Opinion:My first SLR to learn and I enjoyed and taught a lot, I will soon be going to the sister a77 mk2 but the a58 is still a nice object to learn! RnA bit 'noisy shooting and the engine of focus in the lens of series, but at 3-400 € you can not 'ask for better ... intuitive and customizable, even in automatic mode the software works well churning out fantastic photos.
Pros:Price-quality ratio, button layout, electronic viewfinder, Minolta Optical Use
Cons:Electronic viewfinder, low ISO seal, expensive original optics, difficult passage to higher class ...
Opinion:The Sony a58 delivers great satisfaction for being an entry level, the value for money is great! RnFor fortune and unfortunately it has the electronic viewfinder, the pros: you can see the shutter before you press the button, all the info and options that you it is also possible to set it during shooting, unfortunately the electronic viewfinder is not performing as an optical one. The ergonomics of the buttons is not equal, it adjusts everything without disconnecting the eye from the viewfinder, it is not new but you also get used to the traditional ... rnThe possibility of using low-cost Minolta optics with all-in-line quality or higher than the car body, the originals cost really too! rnThe top step has no choice, the a77ii ... but despite the fact that its high quality does not solve the problems of the iso hold that 800 passes to 1600 at most, the switch to ff instead costs the exchange of the aps optics and an investment also very burdensome and obligatory, or the old a99 or oppur and the a99ii to the modest digit of otre 3600%26euro; .rnAf is not the best, not very fast and very often inaccurate, except in face recognition, a very useful feature that focuses on the faces framed.rnChicca is the possibility in manual focus to have a coloring tool edges when focused, with the option of choosing between white and red in the yellow, thanks to which I could make good focus in the macros even without the possibility of magnifying the framed image ... rnThe sensor, 20 sec are not a few, the image quality is good especially at 100 iso, only note, following some long exposures (in the order of 90 seconds) my sensor has burned ... unfortunately .. rnInsomma if there is no big pretension and maybe the desire to go to ff, the Sony a58 has nothing to envy to other machines, still i would recommend it to neophyte, you can find it again on amazon or the great offers on ebay ... rnBuona light
Pros:Build quality above average and manageability, functionality, performance for an entry-level camera, excellent battery life, 15 points MF, excellent electronic viewfinder
Cons:AF not very fast and not always accurate, embarrassing LCD screen, burst in RAW because of the limited buffer.
Opinion:It 'a good car to start, as a better quality of canon entry and on par with Nikon. Well kept the ISO up to 1600, in addition you have to work at pp. The main problem are perhaps the optical available that are less than the Canon / Nikon and more expensive, even for the brands compatible and consequently even less in used choice.
