What Digital Camera:
85% / Recommended..."The A390 stands its ground well and produces decent pictures throughout its ISO 100-3200 range"

The Alpha a390 is a versatile camera that is ideally suited to both enthusiasts and newcomers to Digital SLR photography. Easy Shooting Mode and Help Guide (with Graphic Display) are ideal on-the-move tools while the tilting display and Quick AF Live View give you a real-time preview of the image your camera's sensor actually sees.

* Extra detailed 14.2 Megapixel CCD Sensor with reduced picture noise for smooth and vibrant colours and textures
* Quick AF Live View – Live on-screen preview
* Tiltable LCD Screen
* SteadyShot Inside – Camera-based stabilisation so you can use any Alpha lens and get the full benefits of image stabilisation
* High Sensitivity ISO 100-3200 and high-IO Noise Reduction for great looking images even in low light
* Easy Shooting Mode plus On-screen Help to make DSLR photography much easier to any newcomer
* Re-designed grip for comfortable handling
* D-Range Optimiser for bright and contrasty images but avoiding burnt-out highlights and blocked-out shadows
* Anti-Dust System

Not voting, but A390 has a tiny viewfinder and I reckon if you want to go the Sony Alpha route, this is a better buy:

http://www.bestbuy.co.uk/product/1000142497/sony-alpha-a290-dslr-with-two-lens-kits.aspx

A290 with 2 lenses, for just £40 more (may even work out to less if you get Quidco cashback).

Spec. of both cameras is similar, but a290 has no live view, but does have bigger viewfinder.

product no longer available and code doesnt work on any items

Yeah if you don't mind not having live view the a290 twin lens kit is better value

The additional lens in the twin lens kit is the Sony 55-200mm zoom lens an is worth £200 on it's own

Always wanted an SLR. Is this one good!

I can vouch for the Sony Alpha range. I have the A200 and it's a great bit of kit.

This seems like a good price, but the twin lens kit seems like excellent value.

I am hearing that the NEX-3 and NEX-5 are the DSLRs to go for. In some cases eclipsing some of the entry level Canon DSLRs according to my professional friends.

NEX-3 and NEX-5 are not DSLR's

As Sinar says they are not true SLR's, they don't have a mirror in them.

Also the Alpha series (I've a A100 as I used to use Minolta so had lens) can use almost all older Minolta Autofocus Lens (usually called the A-Mount) meaning you can pick up decent quality lens used. These use the new Sony E mount so you can;t use any old Lens you need to buy them new as theres not really any used in the market yet.

Whilst the qualitys good, best to think of them as a compact with big interchangeable lens than a true SLR

You can buy a adaptor for A-mount glass

The prices on the NEX range is falling very quickly,make of that what you will...

Don't think auto focus works with A mount lenses on the nex range even with the adaptor.

Have the A200 and it's a great camera
