Photo Review says to buy the entry-level Sony SLT-A57 DSLR if:

  • You’re looking for a capable, high-resolution DSLR that is exciting to use and can shoot stills and Full HD video clips.
  • You want relatively noise-free high ISO settings.
  • You’re prepared to shoot and edit both JPEG and ARW.RAW images.
  • You could utilize some of the multi-frame and high-speed shooting modes.
  • You want body-integrated image stabilization that works with all lenses.

They advise you not to this camera if:

  • You need an integrated GPS receiver.
  • You don’t like electronic viewfinders.

The body retails for $799, but Sony has it on its website for $749 with an 18-55mm lens. Read the full review here.
