Sony SLT-A65 Review
The SLT-A65 was launched at the same time as the long awaited A700 successor, the SLT-A77, and as we mentioned in the introduction to this review, amongst all the excitement over the flagship SLT model there was always a risk that the A65 might get overlooked. To overlook the A65 would be to do it a huge disservice though. Given its price, the A65 will inevitably appeal to a much larger number of users, and considering how much of its core technology is shared with the more expensive A77, the A65 is highly competitive.

Sony Alpha A65 review
The Alpha 65 is a great mid-price DSLR that provides high levels of performance, particularly when it comes to AF and frame advance that hasn't really been seen in a camera of this class before. The image quality is excellent, delivering excellent detail, though it can't quite compete at the higher regions of the ISO range with the competition.

Sony Alpha a65 review
The Alpha 65 is very well-specified in comparison to its rivals, matching or exceeding the competition's feature-sets in many respects. It's pricier, but we feel the impressive stack of high-end features that this camera has to offer more than outweigh its cost.

Sony Alpha A65 SLT Digital SLR Review
For a similar price to mid-entry level cameras from Nikon, Canon, Pentax, instead of a 16-18 megapixel camera and 7fps shooting, you can get a 24.3 megapixel camera with 10fps shooting, built in anti-shake sensor, GPS and electronic level. What you also get with the Sony Alpha A65 with the translucent mirror is extremely quick live view and focusing.

Sony Alpha A65 review
Alongside the A77, the A65 is likely to put the SLT format on the map. This camera does things that DSLRs just cannot do: a 10fps burst mode with continuous autofocus and a live preview movie mode with the same super-fast autofocus is without rival at this price point.
