This book is easy to read, comprehensive and an ideal guide to the now empty wallet you have after plunging into the expensive world of DSLR cameras and their lenses. Whilst in all fairness the Sony on disc guide that comes with the camera has all the necessary information and is actually reasonable to read, this is far better.
I read it all the way through once and now have it on my Kindle as a reference. For me, a very useful purchase.
There are so many brilliant features on these cameras, a lot of which are certainly not obvious, that make this book an invaluable aid.
The fact that it caters for two cameras, the A65 and the A77 is not really a drawback as functionality of both seems to be very similar. Illustrations are clear and not as space filling as in some books I've owned.
The use of symbols to indicate tips, warnings etc is a bit of a gimmic, but this is common to most Dummies books.
To be fair, I've not read the book from cover to cover yet, but it's not really that sort of book, I'll probably use it more as a reference.
