    Comments about Alpha a5000 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 16-50mm Lens (Silver):

    I have wanted to get back into photography but wasn't sure which camera would be best. The Alpha 500 was the perfect choice for me. I am outdoors all day and needed a compact, lightweight body with a shorter lens and this fit the bill. The camera is easy to use, takes great pictures and is a lot of fun!

    Comments about Alpha a5000 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 16-50mm Lens (Black):

    I owned NEX-5 and had been using it since it was released 4 years ago and I enjoyed using it so much. I don't see any reason that I will go for another APS size censored camera other than this series, including DSLR. a5000 absolutely has cool improvements, image quality, low light, wifi, controlling etc., and it's even lighter, this is great for climbers like me! If there is a complaint, I would say it's the Playmemories app doesn't support video shooting which makes no sense. If this is not resolved, I will not go for the top line of Sony camera products at all.
