The software makes it a better deal if you don't have something already. I have the full Photoshop and Lightroom, so it wouldn't help me. Great for those just getting started though.

Good basic camera with a great sensor and processor. It's the same sensor and Bionz processor as the A5000, A51000, and the legendary A6000. The camera also comes with a Sony Multi-Interface Mount for external flash and is compatible with all the Sony E mount and full frame FE mount lenses. The only things about this camera is there there is NO PHASE DETECTION autofocus - you get contrast detection focus only, which is slow and pretty poor with locking on subjects in low light. The camera is also the most basic current E mount model and it is lacking a lot of features. Most reviews call it very basic and leave you wanting for a bit more later down the road. That said, this is a great starting place for beginner photographers who want something better than cell phone or point and shoot cameras. It's also fairly small, although not as small as the previous NEX 3X models.

Good deal if you take the trouble to sell the software, which worth about $50 after fees.

Adobe is scamming on eBay and Amazon with lawsuit threats against those who resold these legitimate softwares. $50 now will become negative $700 if you can be easily scared by their bullying tactic.

Not an issue if you plan to use vintage lenses with it. Some pros are even using it for harsh conditions photoshoots where they might damage their more expensive equipment. And since it has the same sensor and processor as the more expensive models, the shots are just as good.

It is a great price for a great camera, but it is a mirrorless camera, not a DSLR. But some of the best cameras are mirrorless these days.

You might want to check your facts. This may share the same 20.1 megapixel sensor as the A5000, but both the A5100 (I think you meant) and the A6000 use a 24.3 megapixel sensor. Not quite the same.

I agree this is a decent camera, especially for this price. However, this is a mirrorless digital camera. There is a difference between that and a dslr. Here is an article explaining the difference in case you or anyone else is interested in understanding how they differ:

Video function stinks (60i)... that would be the killer for me.

Yes, I forgot to mention that it does have manual focus peaking, great if you are into manual lenses. Thanks!

Did you know that 60i is the highest rating?

60i video excels in fast action video such as sports.
Maybe you got it confused with resolution, which is 1080p for this camera.
