Going price elsewhere seems to be over £500, even on amazon it is £520. This was in the Colliers Wood store and its not online so I guess its an instore deal only.
I know this may not be for everybody, since sony dslrs aren't that popular. But what its designed to do it does really well, and thats taking photos. not videos.
has the fastest autofocus with live view since it uses a secondary sensor to display the live view meaning the mirror can stay down you can maintain the fast auto focus speeds.
It's got some pretty good reviews from what I've read as well
