The A5000, in terms of features and image quality is probably unsurpassed at this price point. It offers a large APC sized sensor in a very small package providing a high resolution, low noise solution that can fit in your jacket pocket.

The tilt screen is excellent for taking one’s own picture (I’m too old for the word selfie) and the A5000 feels good in hand despite its compact size. Focusing performs well for static/slow subjects and accuracy is very good even in low light. Usual mirrorless perks such as face recognition help matters even further. A nice little bonus is that the pop-up flash can be manipulated to bounce of the ceiling.

Digging deep into the camera's menus reveals many layers of function which I suspect some will find superfluous. While the A5000 is hardly difficult to use, it is pretty unsatisfying. Those who like to shoot manual and adjust for changing light won’t enjoy the A5000’s workflow and it is in this regard the A5000 feels much more like an electronic device than a camera. Some of the settings also feel a little dumbed down; even features that would only appeal to those who know what they are doing. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for clever design that empowers people to get better results but that is not what is going on with the A5000.

The battery charges within the unit itself meaning you won’t be able to use the camera while charging a spare and you don't need to pack a charger. The kit lens is compact and has a useful focal range. It also has good ergonomics for video as well as a very quiet focus motor. Unfortunately, it’s also very soft with average contrast and will ultimately have to be upgraded if you want to make the best of the A5000’s excellent sensor.

I bought this camera back in June 2014 to take travelling with me as I wanted to take high quality pictures without having to carry round a full size SLR in my rucksack and I couldn't have chosen better. I am extremely delighted with the photos I took on this camera and it was the perfect size to carry around without it being a nuisance.
I'm not a very experienced photographer either but i found this camera really easy to use and had no trouble changing settings when needed. I've added an example picture that I took

I picked this up as a backup companion for my dslr to take out with me. I'd been curious as to the Sony mirrorless e-mount offerings and didn't really want to drop a lot on a more expensive a6000/6300. I was just using this as a chance to explore mirrorless with an eye to higher end models in a couple of generations time. I've got to say I've been quite nicely surprised by this little APS-C camera. It really does offer an insane amount in what is a tiny little package! After using it for a while now here's a summary of my thoughts. Full disclosure, I've not really explored the movie functions so please check out other reviews for that.

Pros:
-Compact: This thing is lightweight and with the kit lens very low profile, absolutely ideal as a travel camera.
-Features: It's jam packed full of them. All of the modes that you'd expect from an entry range dslr are here and some that may not be depending on the model. In this respect it probably beats out the very low end dslrs .The modes are as follows, Program Auto, Shutter Priority, Aperture Priority, Sweep Panoramic, Movie, Intelligent Auto (Good for very new users I'd imagine), and good old manual.
-Auto Focus: It's stupidly good even more so than my ageing canon! Continuous af is really decent at maintaining tracking and with the decent burst fps is really very good indeed.
-Focus Peaking and Zebra Stripes: These are both very helpful features! The stripes in particular are really good for establishing exposure settings, especially when working out more complicated or awkwardly lit compositions.
-Low light performance: It's great! It gives some really decent usable images at higher ISOs and I was quite impressed with the noise performance when reviewing images in lightroom.

Bought for work. We didn't need half the features, however it works well. Consistantly take clear, crisp picture both close up and for distance. Picks up the colour well in low lighting (which is very important for us). We are very pleased with it.

I've taken some amazing photos of aurora with this at night. The sensor is great. Camera focuses well and is easy to use. Good manual options. I'm less impressed in day light where it seems to over expose a bit and lens is less sharp than my Panasonic fz200 bridge camera. It's an OK kit lens but that leica Panasonic f2.8 lens is really good. If you crop there is more detail in the Sony images but viewed normally they look less sharp in terms of focusing. Probably be much better with a good kit lens. This is not the only camera to fail to match the fz200. I had canon SLR 1200d first and sent it back as lens was even softer and had terrible chromatic aberration. Image quality was nearer to my phone than my bridge cam. This doesn't suffer much with that. I think these cameras are designed for better lenses than the basic one provided. Still a better kit lens would be nice. I hoped this would take nice twilight and sunset pictures but it insists on trying to make every image look like it was taken mid day. By doing so it uses slow shutter speed and you get blur too. You can get around this manually but my bridge camera with small sensor has no such issue. Pictures are detailed with low noise but metering and focus let this camera down.
