The focus sensor array looks quite impressive, covering a high proportion of the frame. Good for off centre subjects but I was a little worried if it would get distracted more with foreground objects. Time will tell.
One thing I did notice was that the EVF now shows the stabilisation live, which I rather like.
A good familiar feel and slow but steady evolution.
Lost my GPS which I want and gained WiFi/NFC which I don't need. My mate has it set to "Flight mode" to save the scarce battery power. I would like a second card slot as well.

I know this is a step up from my old a450, but this thing has settings I have never heard of let alone understand. I really love how it feels and it has a really rugged feel to it. I am struggling to use it and understand it but I am determined to grow into it and look forward to learning as I go. Really like it.

I have also been looking at the smartphone wifi use and to be honest its either me (it usually is) or for some reason the camera does not focus well using this method as wireless control. I bought a cheap chinese wireless controller for my a450 and it worked just like the shutter button, half press operates focus, full press takes the shot, but not on the smartphone. Perhaps a gadget too far. I have to assume that a wireless controller would work better. On the bright side I am very pleased with how it feels and the quality of picture with my minolta f1.7 50mm prime and Sigma F2.8-4 HSM. They match the camera very well and no operating issues what so ever. Perhaps when I learn a bit more I will post a couple of examples
