Sony Alpha 58 (SLT-A58K)

 

The Sony Alpha 58 (SLT-A58K) offers an upgraded OLED EVF and kit lens, but it isn't the top D-SLR in Sony's lineup.

OLED EVF. Full-resolution 5fps burst shooting. Cropped JPG shooting at 7.3fps. Good performance at high ISO settings. Hinged rear display. Good control layout

EVF not as sharp as other Sony models. Rear LCD could be larger and sharper. Only one control dial. Disappointing kit lens

The Sony Alpha 58 ($599.99 direct with 18-55mm lens) is the current entry-level D-SLR in the company's catalog. The 20-megapixel camera offers a few modest upgrades over the previous-generation Alpha 57, including an OLED viewfinder, but takes a step...

Nice entry level DSLR

 

I've got a Pentax ist and a Q, never planned to buy a Sony but a friend gave me an old Minolta Maxxum with a couple nice lenses so I got this so I could use the lenses. I've only shot about 100 pictures so far but it seems like a great camera with lots...

Great price at the usual Sony picture quality.

 

First, this is your best bang for the buck. Excellent picture quality on a DLSR/SLT for less than $500. As usual with Sony SLT cameras, video is excellent and the fast auto focus shines. For music performances, I added a Zoom H1 and it was perfect for...

Great quality - great RAW files

Nothing negative

Excellent quality photo

 

This camera takes an excellent quality photo. I have currently only scratched the surface on the possible setup options and taken pretty standard photos, but this camera does a good job. I am not a fan of the Sony software to manage photos, it seems to...
