    "wow !...Love it...This camera can do it all the only down side is the kit lens as it is ok for home use but if you require pro photos then you will need to buy lens that cost as much as the camera or twice as much the only ones that are affordable and great imaging are the sigma art 60mm f/2.8 lens and the 50mm f/1.8 Prime lens...These mirrorless cameras will be a lot easier to carry around, which may not be a big deal for someone who will drive to a place and take photos but for walking to the place or riding a bicycle, it makes a lot of difference."

    "Love It...Love it....This is a good little video camera that takes much better video than a cell phone and you don't have to worry about memory....Eventually the usb plug cable where it attached to the camera wore out as I would use it to charge, instead of the adapter that came with it, so take care when using the usb to charge though Sony sells the adapter if you want to go that route."
