Default A580 - Loving this camera :)

This camera is awesome. Not any more difficult to use than my FZ38 either. Quick sample below - straight out of camera with the 18-55 kit lens. Cropped and a 100% crop:

The A580 is the best sony dslr to date, it has some really nice features, and a great sensor. Looks to be a winner for sony shooters.

Practiced the burst a bit at the weekend. With the tamron 70-300, ISO400, f8, about 1/320s. Using high-speed burst, continuous auto-focus:



All nice and sharp. A cropped/resized shot from another sequence:
