Colour Name: Black - 18-55 Lens Kit Verified Purchase
I have recently purchased this camera from Amazon which arrived promptly and in good order. I have just upgraded from the excellent SONY a33 which has served me very well, but I was needing a little more creativity in the settings. I was not expecting however to be blown away by this camera! The handling and build quality are very good, being chunkier than my previous model and having more hand-grip real estate. The screen is beautiful and bright, and the EVF, offering real-time exposure and reviews etc is fantastic, even better than the older a33.
Button placement is very good and all are within easy reach, and some can be programmed to do what you want them to do. I do feel there could have been an extra button or two on the top-plate, but the quick fn menu gives fast and responsive access to pretty much everything.
There are so many features this camera has I can hardly list them all here, but lets say the art and creative styles are just outstanding, and all done in-camera and give a superb, sharp result; no need for post-processing to get fancy effects! There is color select, art, retro, miniature, soft, high contrast b&w, HDR-painting, panorama, 3D, sunset and many more creative modes!
I like to shoot air shows and birds and other moving subjects and the speed of the a57 really is amazing. The shutter operates so fast you barely realise the picture has been taken. Burst mode in full resolution at 10 fps is very impressive. Coupled with my TAMRON 70-300 SP, this camera becomes a formidable sports snapper giving razor sharp images (even at big apertures) and bullet-like speed. For some reason that particular lens didn't perform quite as well on my a33.

Colour Name: Black - 18-55 Lens Kit Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
First of all I'm comparing this camera against a D7000 and I'm probably what you can describe as an enthusiastic amateur when it comes to cameras so I'm also writing the review from that aspect.

This camera is a very good mid-price camera. If, like me, you have a number of Sony/Minolta mount lenses and accessories (I've still got an A200 series that was my first DSLR) then this camera takes them all and works with them perfectly and as a result saves you money. It's very easy to set up and all the guides and software are contained on the camera and accessible through the large clear LCD screen on the back of the camera, and also through the viewfinder.

The translucent mirror system (TMS) means that shooting speed increases so you can shoot (allegedly) 12 frames per second in burst mode as the mirror doesn't move, I didn't achieve that when I tested it out; best I got was 10fps, but then I'm not sure that I had it set up correctly. This TMS is used in the A65 and A77 and means that the camera body can be smaller and lighter as the mirror stays in place and so you don't need the mechanics that go with a moving mirror system and this size/weight difference is borne out when compared to My A200 and the D7000. It has the added advantage that the autofocus isn't interupted whilst shooting and this use of a fixed TMS means that you also get much faster autofocussing speeds and this is important if you're shooting in burst mode or shooting HD video, the only problem with using the continuous phase auto focus feature in video is that unless you've got an external mike you can hear the motor driving the focussing on playback.

Colour Name: Black - 18-55 Lens Kit
This an excellent quality product. I had been tempted by Canon & Nikon equivalents, but as I have some Minolta lens I ideally wanted a Sony Alpha. At first I was going to buy the Alpha 65, but its high pixel count led to doubts about its ability in low light situations. So, I had resigned myself to buying a Canon EOS60D - but the day before I went to buy it, the A57 made its debut. So that's what I bought - and I don't regret it!

The week after I bought it I was taking photos for a film festival in low light where a flash wasn't practical to use, and the A57's HDR system came up trumps with photos being sharp and practically noise-free. The automatic modes work very well. I also used the continuous mode to great effect at the Monaco Grand Prix, it working well with my old Minolta telephoto lens. The electronic view-finder is top-notch and you can chose what information you wanted displayed in it. I also liked the swivel LED display. The menu system is easy to get to grips with, and the controls on the camera body are simple to use. The only gripe had with them was that my big hand managed to accidently switch on the digital zoom occasionally.

The camera gives very good results with the 18-55 kit lens. It also worked very well with my old Minolta lenses, which although heavy didn't unbalance it in use. If I hadn't had them, I would have been tempted to buy the Sony 18-250 lens to replace the kit lens.

In all respects this is an excellent buy. You won't regret it!
