Review Excerpt

  • Improved 20.1-megapixel resolution; Impressive image quality, especially for its price; Fast and decisive autofocus (in most conditions); Very good battery life; Good video quality (Full HD 1080p, though it doesn't support 60p frame rate).

  • Plastic lens mount; Slower burst mode speeds and shallower buffer than A57; LCD no longer fully articulating; Mediocre kit lens; Electronic instead of an optical viewfinder may be a turnoff for some.

  • Great image quality from both JPEGs and raw; Excellent high ISO performance; Up to 20fps full-res burst shooting; Very fast autofocus performance; High-res EVF; 3-way tilting touchscreen; Dual UHS-II slots; 4K 60p video; F-Log support.

  • Slightly higher noise levels than X-T2; No in-body image stabilization; Slight crop in 4K 60p (1.18x); Internal 10-bit HEVC video files require a fast, modern computer.
