In the midst of all the excitement of the Sony Alpha A55 and it’s Translucent Mirror technology, there seems to be little attention being paid to it’s more traditional counter part, the Alpha A580. Since this camera accompanied us to Photokina as well, we thought it time to give it a chance in the spotlight, even if its a little bit late.
I tend to tackle this first in a review as for me it is the most critical part of the camera. The ease of use, whether the camera fits well in the hand etc have become almost more important than anything else. Even if a camera has brilliant image quality, if I cant bring myself to hold it and use it then I am not going to shoot with it.
