Top marks for Sony,
This review is from: Sony A65 24.3 MP Translucent Mirror Digital SLR With 18-55mm Lens (Camera)
After many weeks of research, I decided that Sony is the brand I would buy for my move into DSLR/T photography. Then prompted with a choice between a33, a55 & a65. A77 was discounted very early on as its way too much of a camera for my amateur needs. Finally settled for the a65 as it ticked all the right boxes and some more.
Some of the amazing features: HD video capture with built in image stabilisation and continuous auto-focus, electronic view finder, excellent still images, panoramic stills capture and various other shooting modes. Also, many other features some of which I have yet to explore. The camera feels solid and of really good build quality, the finish is of very high standard and the grip for my average sized hands feels secure.
For a starter the kit lens captures decent images. However, I have purchased a 50mm 1.8 and zoom 75-300 lens. My favourite is the 50mm.
I have now had the camera for almost a year and am totally happy with my decision. Even a year on I'm still learning about the camera and DSLR/T photography in general.
Overall totally recommend.
