Truly exceptional image quality with the 55mm f1.8 prime lens
Easy to transfer images to a smartphone via the Sony app
Very compact & easy to travel with for a full frame camera
Low light ability with f1.8 lens means a flash is rarely needed
Auto mode performs well so camera can be used by people not used to manually changing settings
The zoom lens is relatively poor quality and not worth attaching to the body
Can be a bit fiddly to use, no touch screen and menus are sometimes clunky to navigate
Focus is slow generally & very slow in low light
If you are after a point & shoot camera or a sports camera it won't be for you
Yes, I recommend this product.
