Sony A580 review by DPReview

DPReview finally published their full review on Sony A580 DSLR.  This is interesting camera because many people thought that its sensor is also used by Nikon D7000 (and D5100) . DxOMark test results on both cameras are also similar ( see )

The Sony DSLR-A580 is an excellent all-round performer but also offers a range of innovative features. It’s a great alternative to more ‘traditional’ DSLRs and Sony’s unique dual live view system makes it the ideal compromise for those who like the option of shooting in live view but can’t or don’t want to live without an optical viewfinder.
