Sony Alpha A68 review
- Value for money
- Fast and capable autofocus
- High-quality electronic viewfinder
- Poor quality LCD screen
- Over-sensitive shutter-release
- Uninspiring build quality
The Sony A68 is an interesting and capable addition to the pool of beginner-friendly cameras, and a welcome change from the more obvious DSLR alternatives. Its focusing system is strong and means that it's an obvious candidate for tracking moving subjects, with its form and excellent handling making it a great host body to use with telephoto lenses. It's also a capable and affordable step up from older Alpha bodies, perhaps for those who have already invested in a handful of lenses and wish to continue using them. The low-resolution LCD and mediocre kit lens performance disappoint, but if you plan on largely using the electronic viewfinder and an alternative optic, it's worth considering.
